Engineering Exploration Scholarship

Engineering Exploration Scholarship

Scholarship Purpose

To promote the education of potential future engineers through the opportunity to explore careers and develop skills in engineering and science.  The Summer Youth Program is a one-week program at the Michigan Technological University (MTU) campus, which gives high school students an opportunity to explore careers and develop skills.  The students will participate in laboratory, classroom and field experiences in a selected career area. More information about the program is here.


The scholarship is awarded to a high school student in grades 9-11 in the Mid-Michigan tri-city area or neighboring county. It covers tuition, room, and board plus a $100 travel allotment for a one-week session at the MTU Summer Youth Program.   

The program is a popular event and classes tend to fill quickly.  If you are concerned about not getting your first choice session, we recommend you register directly through the program's website. If you are chosen as a winner of this scholarship, you will be reimbursed if you have already registered. Due to the timing of the application cycle, course offerings for summer of 2022 are not yet available on the MTU website. Once the winner is selected, we will work with them to arrange registration and ensure enrollment in their program of choice.
