Computer Science Scholarship Program
The Computer Science Scholarship program represents a truly meaningful contribution to the future. The program was established by the Department of Computer Science with the assistance of business and industry. Due to budget constraints, a limited number of scholarships are awarded each year.
This Scholarship requires the student to be enrolled as a full-time student in Computer Science and maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 in each academic year/semester. Students will also be engaged in a scholarly (or technically challenging) activity under the supervision of a Computer Science faculty member. Any withdrawal from computer science courses or failure to maintain full-time status during the semester will constitute an automatic loss of scholarship. Scholar must follow specified plan of study as outlined in the University Catalog/Department Balance Sheet.
