Rochester Institute of Technology is awarding scholarships to transfer students who plan to enroll in engineering and technology programs. The Engineering and Technology Transfer Scholars Program is funded by a $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, which was awarded with the goal of substantially increasing the number of high-quality professionals in the STEM disciplines—science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Scholarship recipients will receive $2,000 during the first two quarters that they are enrolled in a full load of academic courses at RIT. The scholarship will be reduced to $1,000 per quarter for the remaining four quarters of their undergraduate requirements.

All eligible transfer students who apply to the following departments will be considered for the scholarship: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology and packaging science, electrical, computer and telecommunications engineering technology and civil engineering technology.
