Scholarships that target students interested in engineering provide an excellent way to help pay for the rising costs of higher education. Since engineering scholarships are plentiful and come from a variety of sources, such as corporations, non-profits, foundations, institutions, and governmental bodies, future engineers have a host of opportunities available to them.

Meteorites streak through the sky, dropping a mysterious dust. Adults fall unconscious worldwide. To rescue them, kids must gather dirt from Mars. Who says learning science and engineering can’t be fun? Not NASA engineers! They’ve teamed up with engineering students and gamers to create Falling Dust, a free, alternative-reality game that lets multiple players apply real-world skills to save humanity.
