Chemical Engineering Scholarships

The academic major of chemical engineering involves the application of math and the natural sciences to create new products and technologies and also to analyze and meliorate global issues such as pollution. If you're creative and enjoy quantitative analysis, creative reading and writing and teamwork, chemical engineering could be the major for you. Continue reading to find out more about this major and about the world of chemical engineering scholarships.

These programs are designed to train degree candidates how to create and design the products and processes that power our world. We're talking about semiconductors, fuel cells, antibiotics, petroleum-based fuels and environmental pollution cleanup methods. Typical courses you're likely to encounter include thermodynamics, engineering economics, microbiology, statistics, calculus, physics, organic chemistry, chemical plant design and differential equations.

Your program will most likely begin with some broad introductory courses in math and the natural sciences.  As you advance in your studies your courses will become more focused as you study the chemical and biological processes behind chemical engineering. Concentrations are available at the bachelor's degree level.. These include biomedical engineering, materials engineering and pharmaceutical engineering.

As you investigate the chemical engineering degree programs you are interested in, keep in mind that there are a wide variety of programs out there. Find out what sort of internship opportunities the college offers. Also make sure that the campus computer facilities and the other labs are up-to-date and sufficient to support the program. Finally, make sure that the program in question is accredited by an engineering accreditation board, such as ABET.   

When looking for chemical engineering scholarships keep in mind that some segments of the field are currently more popular than others. Relatively new areas such as nanotechnology, information systems and biotechnology represent the cutting-edge of the industry. These areas may be better represented in both degree programs and scholarships opportunities.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job prospects for chemical engineering careers should be strong over the coming decade. Careers will be available in industries such as the pharmaceutical, chemical, materials and fuel industries. Job opportunities will be most robust for those with advanced degrees.

AFPE Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Program

Students who have completed at least three (3) semesters of graduate study toward the Ph.D. and who have no more than three (3) years remaining to obtain the Ph.D. degree in a graduate program in the pharmaceutical sciences administered by a U.S. college of pharmacy. Students enrolled in joint Pharm.D./Ph.D. programs are eligible to apply if they have completed the equivalent of three full semesters of graduate credit toward the Ph.D., and if the Ph.D. degree will be awarded within three (3) additional years. The applicant must be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident. Number of awards and stipends: Up to eighty (80) Fellowships (renewals and new awards) are awarded annually. Fellowship stipends can range from $6,000 to $10,000 annually. The Fellowship stipend may be used for any purpose decided by the awardee and college that will enable the student to make progress in their pursuit of the Ph.D. - e.g. student stipend, laboratory supplies, books, materials, travel, etc. None of the funds shall be used for indirect costs by the institution. No support is provided beyond a maximum of three years. The number of AFPE Pre-doctoral Fellowships awarded each year depends on the availability of funds.
