Scholarships & Awards
The CSE department offers departmental scholarships through over 25 separate sources of funding. Only current Computer Science and Computer Engineering majors are eligible to receive a departmental scholarship. Pre-majors and students in other engineering departments should contact the College of Engineering to inquire about other available awards.
How to Apply
CSE uses the College of Engineering online scholarship application, taking applications for the following academic year during the periods listed below:
- April 1 - May 1: All current CSE students are encouraged to apply; however, few awards with very specific criteria are given during this period.
- August 1 - August 20: Most CSE awards are offered during this application period. All CSE students, especially incoming freshmen and transfer students, are encouraged to apply.
Important Note: If you wish to be considered for departmental awards during both application periods, you need to apply separately when each application period is open.
