Due to this broad-based training in the application of the basic sciences, Chemical Engineers who graduate from Lehigh go on to play important roles in research and industry. They enjoy careers in diverse industries in chemical and petrochemical processing, biopharmaceutical, materials and electronics manufacturing, energy generation and distribution, environmental remediation, process automation and more recently, in new product design.
Established in 1903, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is one of the oldest degree programs at Lehigh University and is also one of the oldest in the US. Lehigh Chemical Engineers have embraced an entrepreneurial culture for over 100 years, establishing a heritage of leadership and collaboration that still thrives today. Our department has taken the practice of chemical and biomolecular engineering into the twenty-first century, bearing on the most technologically challenging issues of the day, including energy, biotechnology, polymeric materials, "green" chemical processing, catalysis and computational systems engineering.

The Office of Financial Aid offers Federal Direct Stafford Unsubsidezed Loans, Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans, and Alternative Student Loans to graduate students. Limited Federal Work Study opportunities are also available.
DIRECT STAFFORD UNSUBSIDIZED LOANS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTSThe Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan is a loan available to Graduate Students who are enrolled in a degree seeking program and who are enrolled at least half-time (6 credits). Students are required to repay the loan after graduation (or when the student is no longer enrolled at least half-time). A six-month "grace period" is applied before repayment begins. The current interest rate for all loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2013 is 5.41%.
Graduate Students may borrow up to the maximum annual amount of $20,500 in Unsubsidized Loan.
Note: Associate and non-degree graduate students are not eligible for Direct Stafford loans and Direct Graduate Plus Loans, but may be eligible for private/alternative loans which are listed in this section.
DIRECT PLUS LOANS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Graduate and professional degree students are eligible to borrow under the Direct PLUS Loan Program up to their cost of attendance minus other financial assistance received. This includes any other loans or financial assistance awarded by the department of study. Applicants for these loans are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Student's must have applied for their annual loan maximum eligibility under the Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loan Program before applying for a Direct Graduate/Professional PLUS loan.
Direct PLUS loans repayment begins within 60 days after the school receives the loan funds. Contact your loan servicer to find out if you qualify for an in-school deferment for this type of loan.
A Private/Alternative Loan is a loan that a student can borrow to help finance the family’s expected contribution. These loans are based on one’s credit history. (A student who has not established credit can apply with a co-borrower and can borrow up to the cost of attendance minus any aid received). We strongly recommend that you carefully review all the terms of each individual loan, as they can vary greatly. Individual loan providers have their own application and timeline. Plan to apply at least 30 days prior to the date the bill is due.
Teaching assistantships (TA’s), research assistantships (RA’s), graduate assistantships (GA’s), fellowships, and scholarships are academic awards made by the University, by individual academic departments, and by the Dean’s Office. Several graduate assistantships unrelated to a particular area of study can be obtained by applying to administrative offices.
Continuing students who request fellowships, scholarships, RA’s, TA’s, and GA’s beginning in the fall semester must file a request with their academic department no later than February 1. Generally, a special committee formed by departmental faculty makes recommendations for the recipients of these awards based on merit. Students are not required to submit a financial statement. In addition to their stipends, graduate students holding half-time TA appointments generally receive tuition remission. Research assistants receive a stipend for research services and their tuition is commonly paid directly by research projects. Joint appointments as teaching assistant, research assistant, and graduate project assistant are permissible, subject to appropriate approvals.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
