In addition to the other sources of scholarships and finanacial aid available at the University and School levels (see links below), the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has a modest amount of scholarship funds that are awarded each year in the late fall to students enrolled in MSE. These scholarships, in the range of $500 - $1500 are awarded on the basis of excellence in academics. Formal presentation of the award certificates is made at the MGM Symposium in the late Spring.
There is no application process for these scholarships, they are decided by the department based on academic performance. However, if you have special circumstances or wish to explain why you should be particularly considered, prepare a one page document and submit it to Ms. Nahed Assal in CCR-202 by November 1st.
