DEED offers four types of scholarships to full-time students accepted or enrolled in vocational schools or accredited colleges and universities, encompassing high school seniors through graduate students.

The scholarships are divided into four categories: educational scholarships, student research grants, student internships, and technical design projects.

You should have in mind that each scholarship category has certain eligibility and application requirements.

Full Description

The application process lasts from August 1 – October 15th.

The award is $5,000 paid directly to the student by DEED and up to $3,000 in travel funds to share project results at the Engineering & Operations Technical Conference.

All DEED scholarship recipients are required to complete a Summary Abstract for their projects.
