The Department of Civil Engineering has several scholarships designated specifically for civil engineering students. Some are featured below, but several such as the SUEZ scholarship and Othmar Ammann students need to apply via the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences  scholarship page. Applications for these awards are typically due in December/January. Through the CEAS scholarship page, you can also find engineering-wide scholarships. A listing of scholarships available to all SBU students can be found on the Scholarship page on Stony Brook University's website.


Civil Engineering Gateway Fellowship. The goal of the Civil Engineering Gateway Fellowship is to recruit outstanding SBU undergraduate students to pursue an MS degree in civil engineering at SBU with the additional opportunity of linking their graduate education with an industry engineering experience. The fellowship consists of a $5,000 award for use towards tuition costs during one academic year (two semesters). The fellowship will be split and awarded each academic semester. Two awards per year are estimated. The Gateway Fellowship is provided in partnership with H2M Engineers and Architects. The application period is 5pm (EST) November 1 to 5pm (EST) November 15.

Civil Engineering Research Experience Award Fellowship. The Civil Engineering Research Experience Award provides high-achieving civil engineering undergraduate students with an early opportunity to become engaged in research with faculty in the Department of Civil Engineering during the summer periods. The award is in the form of a paid research assistantship of $5,000 over 10 weeks. Students are expected to conduct research on a substantive, faculty-guided project, and contribute and participate in related professional development activities. Award winners will not be able to pick their own research project. Two awards per year are estimated. The Research Experience Fellowship is provided in partnership with Posillico Inc. The application period is 5pm (EST) March 1 to 5pm (EST) March 15.
