Scholarships & Financial Aid

Each year, the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences awards many scholarships to its students. These awards of several hundred to several thousand dollars honor the recipients and are normally applied to tuition for the following year. Various benefactors of the college, often CEPS alumni, have established endowments that fund these scholarships.

In addition to the CEPS-Industry scholarships, CEPS students are eligible for nearly 100 different scholarships by the generous support of alumni, industry and professional groups. While some are based on financial need, many recognize merit alone. Some target specific areas of study or research at UNH, while others may focus on students from a particular region or high school. Other factors that may be considered include campus involvement, leadership ability, military status and others. Most awardees are continuing full-time students with a GPA of at least 3.0.

To be eligible for an award, and to ensure that students are matched appropriately with scholarships, students must complete an online scholarship application. The scholarship application process begins in late November, with an email from the CEPS Dean’s Office, and concludes with recipient selection and notification in May. These scholarships are for continuing students and scholarship funds are applied toward the next academic year.

If you still have additional questions about this process, please contact your department advisor.
