Scholarships and Fellowships

The College of Aeronautics and Engineering offers scholarships to our students ranging from incoming freshman through senior undergraduates. Scholarships and aid are available to students at all levels and all majors. Apply with a single application through ScholarshipUniverse!

ScholarshipUniverse is a one stop shop and a matching system for all your scholarship needs. It allows you to create a profile that enables you to connect with various internal and external scholarship opportunities. To use the portal, you must be an admitted or continuing student at Kent State.

ScholarshipUniverse can help you find additional scholarships based on:

  • your major
  • academic achievements
  • financial need
  • activities and interests
  • and more!

Receiving a scholarship is not guaranteed and scholarships are competitive. That’s why you should apply to every scholarship you can to increase your chances of receiving additional scholarships.

To get started, you’ll need to complete a Student Profile in ScholarshipUniverse. The questions you’ll be asked to answer will help match you to scholarships. While you don’t have to answer all of these questions – the more you answer, the better your search results will be.

Applications for the upcoming academic year become available the first Monday of October with a deadline of March 1
