Student Resources

We work closely with alumni and private business leaders to supply ongoing opportunities and to continue the cycle of education and service in the engineering community. Our faculty members have specific areas of expertise and talents. Let us know how we can support you.

Fellowships, Grants and Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships

The School of Engineering has several assistantship positions available that are annual, renewable and include tuition and a monthly stipend. The assistantships include responsibilities in teaching or research. Master’s and doctoral students may apply, but current University of Dayton undergraduate and graduate students are not eligible.

Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) and WISE Ally Scholarship Program

A new scholarship program designed to advance women in STEM by encouraging an inclusive community where all students, regardless of gender, can participate and feel welcome. This program is run jointly by the University Honors Program (UHP) and the Women in Science and Engineering Living Learning Community (WISE LLC), and is supported by the Women in Engineering Program (WEP).

SOCHE Fellowships

SOCHE will award up to 15 three-year fellowships to new doctoral students studying engineering or computer science at one of the three member institutions — the Air Force Institute of Technology, the University of Dayton or Wright State University. These fellowships support full-time, research-based doctoral study and will be awarded to candidates with exceptional demonstrated capability and aptitude. Awards include a stipend of $27,500 plus full tuition for three years of study and research. Candidates will be invited to visit the three SOCHE campuses before the awards are announced. 

SOCHE Scholarships 

SOCHE Scholarships are full-tuition scholarships available for both part- and full-time graduate students in engineering. For highly qualified, full-time doctoral students, opportunities exist for full-tuition with yearly stipend. Applications for the SOCHE Scholarship will ONLY be accepted online. Supporting documentation may be submitted to your home institution.

Make a positive impact on the community while exploring engineering concepts. The School of Engineering Learn, Lead and Serve (LLS) Fund encourages students to perform domestic and international research while serving community organizations. Individual grants range from $1,000 to $2,000, and higher amounts are available for team projects. Applications are accepted each semester. For more information, contact the Ethos Center,

Ohio Space Grant Consortium Fellowships are competitively awarded fellowships to graduate students pursuing degrees in one of the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) at Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) universities. Awardees are required to participate in university research projects and present results at the annual OSGC Research Symposium.
