As future creators of railway lines, waterways, roads and space shuttles, to name some of the first things that spring to mind, engineering students are crucial to the development of society. To support this future contribution, universities and other organizations offer plenty of engineering scholarships and fellowships.

In recent years, scholarships for engineering students, as well as other STEM scholarships for mathematics, technology and science students, have become more recognized and plentiful in number, allowing many more prospective STEM students to achieve their educational and career ambitions.

Below is a list of current engineering and other STEM scholarships from around the world, to help you find the funding you need. If you want to study architecture, we’ve also listed architecture scholarships, and we have a separate list of scholarships to study at the top 10 mechanical engineering schools, based on the QS University Rankings by Subject.
