*Offer details: The overall tuition for the 30 credit program is $39,000 less the cost of one 3 credit course corresponding to the final course in the student's program of study after the scholarship is applied. The scholarship offer is available only to qualified new (first-time) enrollees (not current or returning students to the master's programs) who are graduates of one of the undergraduate bachelor degree programs in the Case School of Engineering for one of the online engineering master's programs. This includes the Master of Engineering (ME) program, the MS program in Biomedical Engineering, the MS program in Mechanical Engineering, and the MS program in Systems and Control Engineering.

Scholarship funds are not payable directly to recipient. $24,570 of the scholarship will be applied in a prorated manner over the duration of the student's program of study. The remaining scholarship amount corresponds to a charge of $0 for taking and passing the last required course in the curriculum and will be applied after the final drop/add period for this concluding course. If a student receives other forms of financial assistance, then the student's financial assistance may require modification to account for the scholarship by preventing any 'over-award,' such that the total financial assistance received does not exceed the cost of attendance, as defined and determined by the Office of Financial Aid of Case Western Reserve University. Recipients of the scholarship must remain continuously enrolled in the program through completion. Exceptions may be granted for students who obtain a university-approved leave of absence. Students receiving the scholarship must maintain satisfactory academic progress at all times for the scholarship to remain in effect. This scholarship offer may be revised, rescinded or terminated at any time. All admissions and scholarship decisions of Case Western Reserve University are final.
