---- — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is again offering competitive engineering scholarships valued at $3,125 per semester for up to five years.

Full-time students accepted or currently enrolled in a qualifying civil engineering program are encouraged to learn more and download the scholarship application at www.INDOTScholarship.IN.gov.

Applications for the 2014-15 school year must be postmarked by March 30.

INDOT’s scholarship program leverages federal transportation funding to offer civil engineering scholarships to college students enrolled at one of Indiana’s Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology certified engineering schools.

Eligible programs include Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, Purdue University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Trine University, University of Evansville, University of Notre Dame and Valparaiso University.

Scholarship recipients will receive as much as $3,125 per semester or $2,083 per trimester for up to five years of post-secondary education, including a maximum of two years of graduate school.

Scholarship funds can be applied to educational expenses such as tuition, fees and books. In return, recipients will work at INDOT in full-time, paid positions during their summer breaks.

Upon graduation, scholarship recipients must work six months at INDOT for each academic semester they received a scholarship.

More information on the INDOT Engineer Scholarship program and an application form are available online at www.INDOTScholarship.IN.gov.
