Scholarship funding is available for the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering as a result of the college differential tuition applied to undergraduate students. The objective of the CCE Excellence scholarship is to attract and retain top students based on merit or financial needs.
The Civil and Construction Engineering Excellence scholarship will be distributed among sophomore, junior and senior students in both civil engineering and construction engineering programs. The scholarship award will be a minimum of $750 per semester ($1,500 per academic year). Students must maintain the minimum GPA listed below for receiving the next semester’s award.
Undergraduate civil or construction engineering students who pay differential tuition may apply and qualify based on the following criteria:
- Top students who maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 for the merit scholarship.
- Students with financial needs as determined by the Western Michigan University Financial Aid Office who maintain a minimum GPA of 2.75 for the financial needs scholarship.
- Full-time students during the academic year when applying.
Recipients and amounts of scholarships will be determined by the departmental scholarship committee with 70 percent of the available funds assigned to merit-based scholarships.
Students will not receive this award if they are recipients of the Medallion scholarship. Students must maintain the minimum GPA requirements to maintain the award for the academic year.
