A student's future is priceless and the possibilities are endless, so let's make the most of it. Wentworth offers merit scholarships to students who demonstrate academic excellence. No additional scholarship forms are required. Applications received by the priority deadline will get first consideration. We’re here to help you determine the best way to afford a Wentworth education. Our students are from across the world whose varied experiences, achievements, and interests help cultivate the inclusive and vibrant academic community that is Wentworth.
The President's Award is offered to academically talented students as a symbol of Wentworth's commitment to educating the architects, designers, engineers, technologists, and future leaders needed by our society.
First-year and transfer students should complete the admissions application as early as possible to be evaluated for the President's Award. No additional scholarship forms are required to receive the merit award. Evaluation is determined by the Admissions Office during our holistic review process and may be renewed for up to five years, depending on the length of the recipient’s bachelor’s degree program. Recipients must be enrolled full-time (12 classroom credits) and maintain a 2.0 institutional cumulative GPA.
Early Action Scholarship (For Fall 2021 Full-Time Applicants)
Submit your application by December 1, 2020 and be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship provided you are accepted. This scholarship is in addition to the merit award and need-based aid you may receive if accepted. You do not have to complete your admissions file by December 1. However, the sooner you do complete your admissions file, the sooner you will learn if you are accepted and, if so, be notified of the $1,000 scholarship and your merit award.
Mass STEM Hub Project
Lead the Way Scholarship In collaboration with Mass STEM Hub, Wentworth awards scholarships to all accepted students who are graduating from a Massachusetts high school and have completed at least three Project Lead the Way (PLTW) courses as indicated by completion of End of Course Assessments.

Mass STEM Hub will provide Wentworth with a list of eligible students who have agreed to share their PLTW course performance by April 15.
The scholarship amount will vary based on the number of qualified candidates with a minimum guarantee of $1,000, renewable for the length of the student’s program, (eight semesters for all majors except for Electromechanical Engineering which is a 10-semester program) provided Satisfactory Academic Progress is maintained as outlined in Wentworth’s catalog. An application is not required by the student to be considered for this scholarship.

Wentworth Institute of Technology is pleased to offer a tuition discount to siblings who are enrolled concurrently in full-time undergraduate degree programs, as specified below. To qualify for the discount, all siblings must be matriculated and enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program, for each period (semester) of eligibility. The sibling discount will be applied as follows:
- 10% tuition discount per student for the 1st and 2nd siblings, enrolled concurrently
- 20% tuition discount for the 3rd and additional siblings, enrolled concurrently
The Sibling Discount does not apply to, and, if applicable, will be removed in the following situations:
- One of the siblings takes a leave of absence, withdraws or graduates from Wentworth
- One of the siblings enrolls in a graduate program while the other sibling is enrolled as an undergraduate
The Sibling Discount applies only to tuition, NOT to housing (room and board) or any other fees that are assessed to student accounts.
To apply for the discount, please list all siblings on the same Sibling Discount Application form. All of the fields must be completed, including the Expected Graduation Term for each student. Completed applications can be dropped off at the Student Service Center, or scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some states award scholarships and grants which can assist students attending Wentworth. These states include Massachusetts and Vermont.
A limited number of Federal Work-Study jobs, which are based on financial need, are offered as part of the financial aid award.
Federal Direct Loans are awarded to students who apply for Financial Aid. There are two types of Federal Direct Loans: Subsidized and Unsubsidized. Eligibility for a subsidized loan is based on financial need, as determined by the FAFSA.
