Graduate Program Funding
Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering Ph.D. and Master’s programs offer significant and competitive funding packages for newly admitted students. This includes tuition waivers, research assistantships, teaching assistantships, student health care coverage and/or monthly living stipends. There are several categories of fellowships which typically include tuition waivers. By applying by the Ph.D. application deadline for the engineering program you will automatically be under consideration for student funding.
HWCOE Dean’s Recruiting Award
HWCOE Dean’s Recruiting Award consisting of a one-time supplement to your funding offer at the University of Florida. This fellowship payment is in addition to any other graduate assistantship, or other financial aid award offered by UF. Furthermore, if you are awarded an external fellowship (e.g., NSF, etc.), you will be able to maintain this fellowship, unless the external fellowship has language that prohibits this. Individual engineering departments determine which level of annual stipends are awarded. This award is bestowed to only the most outstanding and promising Ph.D. candidates who have been admitted to our doctoral program.
HWCOE Dean’s Research Award
UF HWCOE Dean’s Research Award provides a Graduate Assistantship that includes a bi-weekly stipend, tuition waiver, and our GatorGradCare student health care coverage. In addition, this award can include a one-time payment. Individual engineering departments determine which level of annual stipends are awarded; our best offer is a minimum of a $30,000 annual stipend. This prestigious award is bestowed to only the most outstanding Ph.D. candidates.

Academic Achievement Award Scholarship
The Academic Achievement Award Scholarship for new engineering Master’s Students is offered to convey our enthusiasm in attracting you to the University of Florida and our commitment to supporting your professional development. This award is available to attract all new engineering Master’s students who are non-State-of-Florida resident students. State-of-Florida residents are not eligible. This is available to students of all citizenships (U.S. Citizen, International, Permanent Resident). The waiver will be allocated at a total award of $4,500 for $1,500/semester up to three semesters with a minimum enrollment of 9 credit hours per semester. This award cannot be combined with any other Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering awards or University of Florida awards such as EDGE online distance learning, Glenn and Deborah Renwick Engineering Scholarship, Graduate/Research/Teaching Assistantships, or Latin American-Caribbean (LAC) Scholarship, etc. We hope this partial tuition waiver will make the cost of your education more affordable.
Glenn and Deborah Renwick Engineering Scholarship (Discontinued)
The Renwick Engineering Scholar Award provides $20,000 for non-Florida residents (out-of-state, international) and $10,000 for Florida residents (in-state) towards the completion of an engineering on-campus Master’s degree.
