Mechanical engineering encompasses a dynamic field of knowledge with lifelong learning opportunities.Financial aid and scholarly recognition for undergraduate and graduate students is available through the various scholarships listed below. Deadlines and other terms and conditions vary, so please review the list carefully before applying to make sure you meet eligibility requirements for one or more scholarship.A scholarship is considered by ASME to be a grant made to a student to enable or assist the student in pursuing an educational program in mechanical engineering or mechanical engineering technology at the undergraduate or graduate level. [from ASME Society Policy P-13.5]

About the Program & Criteria

ASME Scholarships are awarded annually to eligible ASME Student Members.
You must be a current ASME student member in good standing (for login to the ASME online scholarship application). Click here to Join ASME or to Renew your dues.
All scholarship payments will be made directly to the student's college or university to be used for educational costs in the following academic year. Payments are made by the end of August..
ASME Scholarships are intended to assist with upcoming studies in the next academic year.
To be eligible, you must be a community college, college, or university student who is enrolled full-time in Mechanical Engineering (ME), Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET), or closely related engineering studies.
For your major to be considered 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.
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.
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.
ASME Scholarships require enrollment in an ABET* accredited, or substantially equivalent, engineering degree program (see below).
Preference may be given to students who demonstrate the following:

Strong ASME leadership role and participation with ASME extra-curricular activities such as holding office in the ASME Student Section or on an ASME committee.
Leadership within the engineering academic context specified above, and a strong potential for contribution to the mechanical engineering profession identified in a recommendation letter.
Outstanding humanitarian extra-curricular leadership and activities as a volunteer with another charitable organization using mechanical engineering skills.
High level of financial need.
