If you want to or are already studying Engineering, then you could be in luck when it comes to finding scholarships. Engineering is an area where there are more scholarships available than other subjects in order to encourage more people to enter the engineering industry. There are also quite a few engineering scholarships that are not limited to just one specific university.
