This page is intended for use by Cal Poly Engineering Faculty to be aware of annual University and College of Engineering faculty funding opportunities and awards. Dates from the past indicate that the due date for this academic year has not yet been released (but may be released around the same time as the previous year). Some funding and awards are intended for students and/or staff, but faculty should be aware of these as many faculty serve as advisors for student projects and work with award-deserving students and staff. Also, for student scholarships, please direct students to login to the Cal Poly portal and click on the Cal Poly Scholarships link. They can fill out the application to become eligible for a wide range of scholarships and can check the box "Interested in applying for CSU Systemwide Scholarships" to fill out another application for CSU wide scholarships.
