Corporate Partners

Corporate Scholarships

Providing scholarship support for undergraduate students is an excellent way for companies to connect with high-achieving future engineers. Each year, we award $750,000+ to exemplary students through the Corporate Engineering Scholarship Program.

We will work with your recruiters to define key selection criteria  GPA, major, class standing, citizenship and activity in student societies or organizations. A committee of faculty and staff will then match scholars from a pool of applicants to companies. Resumes of the students are provided, and companies are encouraged to interact with their scholars throughout the year. The Dean of Engineering hosts the Scholarship/Fellowship Luncheon during Fall Semester to honor donors and scholars together.

For more information on establishing a scholarship in your company’s name, contact Corporate Relations in the Office of Advancement.

Corporate Fellowship Support

More and more companies seek talented Master- or PhD-level engineers to address the complexities of their markets.  For companies, this type of partnership offers benefits such as:

Improved recruiting

Providing a fellowship will allow your organization to develop a direct relationship with one or more graduate students. Interactions could include luncheons, internships, research collaborations or mentoring opportunities.

Goodwill

Fellowships exemplify an organization’s commitment to education. Supporting deserving students creates a partnership that is recognized by the student supported, the College and the University.

Increased exposure to faculty

Fellowships provide an excellent opportunity to forge an ongoing relationship with the faculty that advise the students you support.

Types of Fellowship Support

      • Endowed: An endowed fellowship can be established with a gift of $750,000 or more. Funding commitments may be met over a five-year period. An endowed fellowship will exist in perpetuity. The fellowship can carry the name of your organization or another name (e.g., the name of a key employee). Recipients are funded by the endowment earnings.
      • Expendable: An expendable fellowship can be established with gifts of $10,000 or more. Recipients are funded by the gift itself.

Contact Corporate Relations in the Office of Advancement at (734) 647-7080 to discuss how offering fellowship support could benefit your organization and how to get started.
