In December 1988, the Syracuse University community suffered a tragic loss when 35 of its undergraduate students perished in a terrorist bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. Each year, these students are memorialized through the selection of 35 Remembrance Scholars. Selected in a University-wide competition, scholars represent the best and brightest of Syracuse University with outstanding accomplishments in scholarship, service, leadership activities, and citizenship. CEE students have often been awarded these prestigious scholarships.
There are many scholarships available to students that are offered by organizations outside the University. These scholarship awards vary, as do the eligibility requirements.
Students interested in applying for outside scholarships can receive assistance in their search from the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarship Programs located at 200 Bowne Hall The scholarship office staff has compiled binders grouped by major. They also have scholarship books that students can browse. Students can sign up for the scholarship listserv and search for scholarships online at http://financialaid.syr.edu/.
Students can also research scholarships over the Internet. There are many sites listing available scholarships.
