Engineering and Technology (ABET) certified engineering schools. Eligible
university programs include Purdue University, Rose-Hulman Institute of
Technology, Trine University, University of Evansville, University of Notre
Dame, University of Southern Indiana and Valparaiso University.

funds may be applied to educational expenses such as tuition, fees and books.
In return, recipients will work at INDOT in full-time, paid positions during
their summer breaks. Upon graduation, scholarship recipients must work six
months at INDOT for each academic semester they received a scholarship.
