KU’s Undergraduate Application for Admission also serves as the School of Engineering scholarship application. No additional forms need to be submitted unless applying also for the Self Engineering Leadership Fellows Program or the FIRST Robotics Scholarship. Prospective engineering students who are offered scholarships will receive a letter detailing their total scholarship package from the University, School of Engineering and department. The combined scholarship letter documents the student’s award for the coming academic year as well as the projected amount over four years provided the student meets the requirements for maintaining their scholarship funding. If ACT/SAT tests are taken more than once, the highest scores will be used for engineering scholarship consideration. The February test date is the last score that will be used. Students submitting test scores after the February test date may be re-evaluated by the School of Engineering on a case-by-case basis depending on available funds at that time. All grade point averages are converted to an unweighted 4.0 scale so every prospective student has the same opportunity for consideration.
