Eligible Civil Engineering students accepted into or currently enrolled in the School of Engineering at an ABET accredited Indiana college or university may apply for an INDOT Engineering Scholarship. Scholarship recipients also benefit by working for INDOT during summer breaks and after graduation. A limited number of scholarships are available.
Scholarship amounts are $3,125 per semester or $2,083 per trimester. Scholarships can be applied toward an undergraduate or graduate degree in Civil Engineering, or any combination thereof, not to exceed five years total with a maximum of two years toward a graduate program. Scholarship recipients must attend school full-time.
Applications for the 2015 - 2016 school year must be postmarked by March 31, 2015.
The recipient must agree to work full time for INDOT during summer breaks while in school. Summer employment pay is highly competitive compared to other similar positions. After graduation, the recipient must work one six month period for each academic semester for which the recipient has received the scholarship.
Scholarship funds must be used for qualified educational expenses including tuition, fees, and books. The scholarship payments will be sent to the recipients after INDOT receives proof of eligibility. The recipient is responsible for payment of all expenses.
A recipient will be required to repay all amounts actually received under the scholarship program under certain circumstances including failure to (a) maintain eligibility; (b) successfully complete summer work requirements; (c) accept employment with INDOT immediately after graduation; or d) fulfill the required duration of employment after graduation.
Following are some of the criteria reviewed by the Scholarship Committee to help determine scholarship recipients:
