Frequently Asked Questions — Engineering State
Do I get a scholarship for attending Engineering State
All Engineering State participants are offered a $300 scholarship their sophomore year if they are progressing in an engineering discipline and have a declared major in the College of Engineering. To receive the scholarship, Utah State University must be the first institution the student attends post-high school and the student’s declared major must be in the College of Engineering upon admission to USU.
We live far away. Do parents have to attend the awards luncheon?
Many parents attend because they want to see what their children have done during the week. Also, most of the students do not drive and need a ride home. Parents are not required to attend, however, if you believe you are going to receive an award it is nice to have them there for support.
When is the Engineering State application due?
You must complete your online application by 11:59 p.m. on March 31st. The application period may close early if registration fills up before the deadline.
Can I thank the donor or donors who provided my scholarship funding?
Yes! And you should. Contributions from generous donors are what make our great Engineering State program possible. Students have the opportunity on the closing day of Engineering State to write thank you cards to the Donors. The college of engineering makes sure that the donors receive these thank you notes from the Engineering State students.
I have applied for Engineering State and not heard whether or not I am accepted, what now?

As Engineering State Participants, do we have to stay in the dorms?
Yes, we require that you stay in the dorms in order to get the whole college experience. There have been very few exceptions to this rule. If you need more information on this, please talk to the director.
