American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Scholarships
Program of Study: Mechanical Engineering (ME), Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET), or closely related engineering studies.
Enrollment: You must be enrolled full-time at a community college, college, or university.
ME/MET Major Scope: For your major to qualify as 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.
Accreditation: ASME Scholarships require enrollment in an ABET* accredited, or substantially equivalent, engineering degree program.
Cumulative College Level GPA: 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.
Priority 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.
- US Citizen
- Permanent Resident
- International or Other Visa Status
The ASME scholarship is 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.
