University, College, and Departmental Scholarships

The scholarship coordinator for the Department of Chemical Engineering is Dr. Siva Vanapalli

To be considered for a scholarship from the Department of Chemical Engineering, students must complete a Departmental Scholarship form by the deadline, which is generally in March. In the spring semester, look for an email from Kristina Thompson regarding the deadline for the upcoming year and the current version of the application forms. Students not completing the departmental application by the announced deadline will not be considered except in the most extreme of circumstances.
