Financial Aid & Scholarships
The Whitacre College of Engineering offers a number of externally funded scholarships.
- Incoming freshman and transfer students can apply at www.applytexas.org.
- Current students can apply at www.scholarships.ttu.edu and click on the link under "General Scholarship Information."
Once a student applies, he/she is matched to the scholarship for which he/she qualifies. The general scholarship application covers all scholarships — students do not apply for individual scholarships.

The PPST program is designed to improve achievement and expedite student progress through the rigorous curriculum in electrical and computer engineering. Recipients will become part of a mentoring program that will provide direction and support. Students will see and experience clear pathways to graduate school and employment in the fields related to pulsed power engineering and research. Technical activities in pulsed power include high power pulsed accelerators, pulsed power applications, pulse forming networks, high power switching, pulsed electrical insulation and breakdown, electromagnetic energy storage, explosive pulsed power techniques, high current electron and ion diodes, intense particle beams and the associated diagnostics. There is a critical need for highly trained engineers and scientists in pulsed power. Pulsed power applies science to help detect, repel, defeat, or mitigate threats to national security.
The S−SDE program is designed to improve achievement and expedite student progress through the rigorous curriculum in Electrical & Computer Engineering. Recipients will become part of a mentoring program that will provide direction and support. Students will see and experience clear pathways to graduate school and employment in the fields related to semiconductor device engineering. Semiconductor devices include transistor based electronics, high-power devices, RF, Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS), and more. There is a critical need for highly trained people in the semiconductor device industry sector.
Scholarship candidates will be chosen based on a multi-faceted review system that will include: financial need, scholastic achievement, interest in semiconductor device engineering fields, and recommendations. Finalists will be interviewed by ECE faculty. Awardees will be expected to participate in mentoring activities that include a program specific 1-hour seminar. Recipients will be expected to take semiconductor related electives, apply for industrial internships, and remain in good standing throughout the award.
