Scholarships

Overview

Scholarships for graduate engineering students are available from the departments, the college, and the university.

The Koh Family Scholarships
The College of Engineering is proud to offer the Koh Family Scholarships in memory of the Koh family. P.K. Koh and Jean Koh are part of the educational history at Texas Tech. Professor Koh was well known in the engineering field not only for his brilliance but also for his dedication to encourage students to strive for the highest level they could achieve. Professor Koh won one of the most prestigious scholarships in China and it allowed him to study anywhere in the world. He and his wife spent their last 14 years of teaching at Texas Tech University. Upon their deaths, they left their entire estate of $2.7 million to Texas Tech to fund an endowment to help outstanding students with their educational costs. It is through their love for education and their daughter Jessica's tremendous generosity that Tech acquired the Koh's estate. In commemorating the Koh's dedication to the highest levels of excellence and performance, the Koh Family Scholarships will be some of the most prestigious offered in the College of Engineering as well as Texas Tech. It is our expectation that we can continue to preserve and build their legacy through the lives of exceptional students who have chosen Tech for their path of education.
