The College of Engineering Dean’s Scholars Program awards a $10,000-per-year scholarship, for up to four years, to promising, highly qualified undergraduate students across all engineering disciplines.

Dean’s Scholars have access to a cohort-based environment to grow their professional skills and networks. Throughout the program, students meet regularly with faculty mentors and participate in leadership development retreats. They also meet personally with campus leaders, including the dean and influential alumni. Each Scholar is also provided with an enrichment fund that may be used during their academic career for co-curricular and extracurricular activities.

The program directly supports the College’s mission of recruiting highly sought-after first-year students who will lead and enrich the Georgia Tech community while receiving a world-class education and life-changing research opportunities. With support from donors, the College assists these students to become exemplars of Georgia Tech’s motto: “Progress and Service.”
