Scholarships

The College of Engineering at Boise State University offers various scholarship opportunities to both graduate and undergraduate students. All scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement. Scholarships are awarded from two perspectives; auto-match and auto-apply.

In addition, some scholarships require a demonstration of financial need, but FASFA is not required for all Boise State scholarships. We encourage students to complete a scholarship application regardless of whether or not they complete a FASFA.

Follow the steps below and explore all the scholarships the College of Engineering and Boise State offers.

The fall priority deadline is February 15 and the spring priority deadline is October 1 for both the FAFSA and Federal Student Aid Estimator.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now open for the 2022-2023 academic year. The last day to submit the FAFSA for the 2022-2023 academic year is June 30, 2022, but the sooner you complete the FAFSA the sooner you will be evaluated for aid. By completing the FAFSA and Boise State Scholarship Application students can be considered for need-based scholarships and federal financial aid. If you don’t want to be considered for need-based scholarships or federal student aid, proceed to the next step.
