Applying for Dean’s Office Financial Support

The Engineering Coterminal Fellowship program focuses on engineering undergraduates who demonstrated substantial financial need as undergraduates, and whose eligibility for undergraduate aid has been exhausted. Applicants must have been admitted to coterm-MS study in one of the 10 programs in Engineering.

A faculty committee will review applications, and select 35+ students for the sixth cohort. Awards will provide partial funding (approximately half of a full graduate fellowship/assistantship) for up to 3 quarters. These can be combined with partial RA, CA or fellowship support from faculty or departments.


First round funding applications: Monday, February 10, 2020
(for current co-terms). Decisions will be released in Late February. 

Second round applications: Sunday, March 15, 2020
(for February/March admits, but open to all). 

Please review the sample application for the application process, including the short essay questions, and for more detail about the awards.

To apply:

Please be sure to collect the necessary information, including short essay answers, then launch and fill out the online application (available early January 2020). SUNET Authentication is required.

The Engineering coterm page has general information about coterminal study and funding, with links to our departments and to the university’s coterm policies and procedures.
