Engineering Scholarships

Bridge Contest

The dual-degree engineering program at Elon allows students to earn two undergraduate degrees: a bachelor's degree from Elon and a bachelor's degree from an affiliated engineering school. Students spend the first three years at Elon and the final two years at an engineering school. Elon has affiliations with North Carolina State University, North Carolina A&T University, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Penn State, Washington University (St. Louis) and Columbia University. Elon students, however, may apply to any engineering school they choose.

Why Study Engineering at Elon?

The strength of Elon's program is built upon a distinctive undergraduate curriculum that combines courses in the liberal arts and science with engineering courses beginning in the freshman year. By the time the students have completed three years at Elon and two years at an engineering school, they have exceptional career preparation distinguished by broad knowledge in their field and foundational skills essential to the workplace.

In particular, Elon's program offers:

  • Small class size with mentoring by faculty who are focused on teaching undergraduates.
  • Exposure to many types of engineering before a final commitment is made.
  • A variety of internship possibilities.
  • Opportunities to participate in Elon's nationally recognized study abroad program.

Scholarships are available for outstanding students. A special application must be submitted with two letters of recommendation no later than January 10. Apply online or download the Engineering application via PDF. Finalists are invited to campus for faculty interviews and a preview of the dual-degree engineering program. Two scholarships valued at $7,000 annually will be awarded. The engineering scholarship is in addition to other merit-based monies the student has received.
