The College of Engineering has an extensive scholarship program and in combination with its engineering departments, offers about 150 scholarships per year to undergraduate students, worth more than $330,000. This represents a little more than 10% of the student population. The scholarships are annual and renewable. In addition, many engineering students receive scholarships from the University. The College of Engineering supplements the University Scholarship programs.

Freshmen who have been accepted into an engineering major are need to complete the CSUSA (including the Engineering supplemental application) on Ramweb for all available scholarships administered by the College of Engineering for which they meet the requirements as specified by the sponsor. In the process of selecting freshmen recipients, the scholarship committee looks at the strength of the academic high school record (courses completed, cumulative GPA, and class rank) and results from the standardized tests (SAT and/or ACT). Freshmen scholarship offers are mailed in early March. Other scholarship programs may require additional materials.

Continuing students can apply for all the annual scholarships for which they meet the requirements by filling out an online scholarship application. The online application is available on RamWeb in January and February for scholarship consideration for the following academic year. To file an application for scholarships, a student should have at least a 3.0 GPA. In the process of selecting students, the scholarship committee specifically looks at grades earned at Colorado State University and involvement in extra-curricular activities.

Renewable scholarships can range up to $5,000 per year. Annual scholarships range from $500 to $4,000 per year. College of Engineering scholarships can be combined with University scholarships.

The College provides about 55 renewable scholarships per year for a total amount of $175,000. In addition there are about 35 annual scholarships per year for a total amount of $60,000.
