The University of Evansville and the University of Southern Indiana are among a handful of Indiana universities to offer new engineering scholarships from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).
INDOT created the new scholarship to educate Hoosier students and encourage graduating engineers to remain in the state. The scholarship gives recipients more than $3,000 a semester for up to five years of college, including up to two years of graduate school.
Each academic semester, INDOT will make scholarship payments to 20 engineering students. In return, recipients will work at INDOT in fulltime paid positions during the summer. After graduation, scholarship recipients will work six months at INDOT for each academic semester they received a scholarship.
"Indiana's transportation system is our state's economic future, and to create a world-class transportation system, we need world-class engineers," says INDOT Commissioner Karl B. Browning, "INDOT's Engineering Scholarship will turn some of the brightest students in Indiana into exceptional civil engineers, and then put their engineering knowledge to work building a better future for Hoosiers."
Other schools include Purdue University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, University of Notre Dame, Tri-State University, and Valparaiso University.
