Students in the CU Boulder/Colorado Mesa University Civil and Mechanical Engineering Partnership Programs register through CMU, pay CMU tuition, and are eligible for CMU financial aid and scholarships while taking lower-division courses. Upon transitioning to CU Boulder for the upper-division portion of the program, students pay CU Boulder tuition and are eligible for CU Boulder financial aid and scholarships.

CMU Scholarships

Many scholarships are available to qualified students at CMU while they are enrolled as “Pre-Engineering” students working on completion of their lower division course requirements for the BSCE and BSME degrees through the CMU/CU Boulder Engineering Partnership Programs. 

Visit the Financial Aid Office to learn more about scholarships at CMU.

CU Boulder Scholarships

Because the final two years of the BSCE and BSME programs are offered through CU Boulder, scholarships for the final two years of these programs must be acquired through CU Boulder. Information on scholarships for CU Boulder students is presented via an in-person or online orientation each spring. Students should apply to both the CU Boulder General Scholarship Application and the CU Boulder Engineering Scholarship Application each year.
