Grants for Technology

October 23, 2011

You may have considered going to school for a technological degree, but you do not have the financial assistance for tuition. However, there are multiple aid programs including educational grants that help technology students get an education. One such organization is the Association for Computing Machinery. In addition, there are government grants available specifically for technology fields, such as the National SMART Grant and Washington State's Northwest Engineering Talent Expansion Partnership with the National Science Foundation. You may also be interested in the Computer Science Engineering Mathematics Scholarship.

For any one of these grants, you have to follow the specific guidelines on your application. The National SMART Grant is only available for students who study math, chemistry, engineering, technology and sciences. You also have to maintain a high GPA and financial need to be awarded this grant.

Washington State's Northwest Engineering Talent Expansion Partnership offers awards only to those seeking engineering degrees. In addition, your school may have scholarships and grants specifically geared towards a technology degree or related field. For example, Washington State offers opportunity grants that help low-income adults train for high-demand careers.

The Computer Science Engineering Mathematics Scholarships is in association with the National Science Foundation as well. If you are an undergraduate student interested in majors related to engineering, math or the sciences, then you can apply for this award. Acceptance is based upon merit and financial need.

Association for Computing Machinery also offers grants to its members, including a student travel grant. This is especially helpful for graduate students working in the field. The grant allows you to work anywhere in the world on your project and you receive the necessary financial assistance.

If you are a graduate student with a technology research idea, you may be able to find fellowships and research grants through your college department office. Many department heads are given a number of awards to give to exceptional students. However, many students need to be full time with at least a 3.75 GPA and show some form of financial need to receive this awards.

More technology grants and awards can be found through your specific college's financial aid office. Through your financial aid adviser, you can find out about different programs and even work-study aid in a technology field that will both benefit your career and tuition.
