Undergraduate Scholarships & Awards

Thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends, the Department of Computer Science offers scholarships to undergraduate students each year.

Rising junior and senior students are invited to submit an application before March 1 during the prior academic year. The scholarship committee will notify applicants of their decision before May 1.

Students must be enrolled in the fall semester of the following academic year to be eligible. For example, if a student applies in the Winter 2016 semester, he or she must be a junior or senior enrolled in Fall 2016. The Office of Financial Aid will deposit funds into the students’ accounts at the beginning of the fall semester.

The amount of each award will be determined by the scholarship committee.

Students may submit one application to be considered for any or all of these awards.
