Department scholarship program
Incoming freshman

The department awards scholarships to incoming freshman based on their standardized test score (ACT and SAT), high school GPA, and extra curricular activities. The scholarships are highly competitive and are typically awarded for a period of four years subject to satisfactory performance by the student.

Current students

Students enrolled at Auburn may also apply for civil engineering scholarships each year. The number and size of scholarships available varies from year to year. Choice of recipients depends on factors such as academic performance, career planning, technical area of interest and place of permanent residence.

Contractor License Fee scholarship program

The CLF scholarship program is for Alabama residents only, and these scholarships are available to freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors. CLF scholarships are awarded on a year-to-year basis. Scholarship amounts are based on academic performance and vary each year with the availability of funds.
