CS Department NSF S-STEM Scholarship

Through the generous funding of the National Science Foundation, the Department of Computer Science will offer S-STEM scholarships to academically talented students with financial need, to address the shortage of labor, women, and underrepresented groups in computing. Each S-STEM scholar will be supported for four years, up to $10,000 per year. The scholarship is intended to reduce or replace student loans so that students can better focus on their academic endeavors.

To be eligible to apply, you must (1) be a first-year undergraduate for 2015/2016, with an interest in taking early course sequences in computer science, (2) be a U.S. citizen/permanent resident, U.S. national, or otherwise qualified alien, and (3) have financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Women and underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
