Scholarship Description
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) offers the ASME Scholarships for students of mechanical engineering at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

The ASME Scholarships aim to enable or assist the student in pursuing an educational program in mechanical engineering or mechanical engineering technology at the undergraduate or graduate level.

Students can apply for scholarships for both undergraduate and graduate programs. Selection is based on academic performance, character, need and ASME participation.

While you do not need to be studying within the United States to be eligible for many of the ASME Scholarships, you must be enrolled in the upcoming academic year at an ABET-accredited (or equivalent) engineering degree program, or be studying at a university recognized by the Washington Accord countries, or one with an equivalent Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA).

Things you should know:
  1. Apply Annually: ASME Scholarships are awarded annually to eligible ASME Student Members.
  2. Membership Required: You must be a current ASME student member in good standing (for login to the ASME online scholarship application). Click to Join ASME or to Renew your dues.
  3. Money for Next-Year Education: ASME Scholarships are used for upcoming studies educational expenses in the next academic year.
  4. Program of Study: Mechanical Engineering (ME), Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET), or closely related engineering studies.
  5. Enrollment: You must be enrolled full-time at a community college, college, or university.
  6. ME/MET Major Scope: For your major to qualify as closely related to a Mechanical Engineering major, you must be taking at least 25% of your credits each semester in courses from the Mechanical Engineering Department.
  7. Accreditation: ASME Scholarships require enrollment in an ABET* accredited, or substantially equivalent, engineering degree program (see below).
  8. Cumulative College Level GPA: Students must have established their grade point average (GPA) in their degree programs to qualify for ASME Scholarships. If you have not yet established a GPA at the college level, you are not yet eligible for this group of scholarships.
  9. Universal Application: Many ASME Scholarships have specific eligibility requirements, however, when you complete the online application you will be considered for all scholarships for which you qualify.
