Financial Aid

There are external and internal (Auburn) scholarships available for students. External scholarships are pursued by students on their own and available here

There are three main sources of internal scholarships: University, college, and department level.  All scholarships may be applied through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM).

More information on each type of internal scholarship may be obtained through the links or information given below:

  1. University scholarships:

  2. College of Engineering (COE) scholarships:

  3. Department scholarships: Thanks to the support of individuals, foundations, industry and government, the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering has a number of scholarship opportunities available for students. Most of these scholarships are for current students in the major, but a few are available for freshmen who have declared pre-industrial engineering as their major (Comer and Parke). Scholarships are usually awarded for the academic year and selections are made based on academic performance evaluated at the end of the fall semester. Application for all department scholarships is made through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM).

The university requires students to maintain a 3.0 GPA to hold a scholarship. Some of our scholarships require a higher GPA and some require financial need as evidenced by the FAFSA. We have to respect the wishes of the donors in awarding scholarships.

The table below lists the scholarships available.
