Engineering Scholarships Available at UNC Asheville

Engineering scholarships at UNC Asheville are merit-based and are intended to recognize significant academic achievement by students actively following one of NC State's engineering curricula. These include the Joint Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a Concentration in Mechatronics and those of the 2+2 Engineering Program.

Scholarship Sources

The following organizations have generously supported engineering programs on the UNC Asheville campus:
