The Allen School and our Industry Affiliates have a number of scholarships available to current Computer Science and Computer Engineering majors. Review a comprehensive list of these scholarships and application instructions.

Conference Funding

Sometimes the Allen School is able to help students with conference costs such as airfare, conference registration, lodging, and ground travel. Due to limited funding, only Allen School students who are presenting a research paper, session, or have other active leadership involvement within a nationally-certified conference will be considered. The Allen School may fund up to $500 per student per year. We will review requests as they are received, and applicants should expect to hear back from our staff within a 2-week timeframe. You can apply via this form.

Senior Thesis Award

The Allen School recognizes excellence in undergraduate research through its annual Best Senior Thesis Award. The award winner is chosen based on the originality, impact, and written quality of their work. Learn more about the criteria for selection and view past winners.

UW Student Forms

The Office of the University Registrar maintains a web page containing a comprehensive list of downloadable forms for students.

Career Advice & Information

Learn about the resources provided by the school, the College of Engineering, and the university to help students and alumni launch and progress in their careers.

Graduate School

The Allen School has put together some useful information on preparing for and applying to graduate school for those students who are interested in continuing their academic careers beyond the bachelor's level.

Advice from Students

Everyone's experience will be different, but many students find it is helpful to hear from their peers about their experience as Allen School students. Check out our Navigating CSE Guide developed by Allen School student leaders to introduce incoming students with Allen School resources and offer advice from fellow peers. The Allen School also has a team of undergraduate Peer Advisers that are happy to meet with students to provide academic and career advice based on their experiences as a current CSE student. 

Senior Surveys

Each year, we survey our graduating seniors about their destination after the Allen School. View previous surveys for information on employers, job titles, and salary ranges of recent graduates.

Give Feedback

We want to hear from you! The Allen School encourages students to provide us with feedback on any school-related issues, events, etc. We are always interested in enhancing the student experience. The following are some ways you can get involved and provide us with feedback.

Contact the Advisers

The advisers are available to you via phone, email, or in-person. If you wish to meet in person, check the advising calendar for drop-in hours or email to arrange a longer meeting. 

Contact Your Instructor

If you have feedback about a specific course (especially something that might need immediate attention), it is best to contact the instructor directly.

Come to Lunch with the Director

Every quarter, the director of the Allen School, Magdalena Balazinska, hosts a "Lunch with the Director" event. This free lunch provides students an open forum in which they can ask direct questions of the school leadership. Watch the Allen School Discussion Boards on EdStem for information about when the lunch will take place each quarter.

Give Feedback Anonymously 

We hope that all students are comfortable coming to us directly with suggestions or concerns. However, we realize that in some instances students may wish to remain anonymous. To give feedback anonymously please use the Anonymous Feedback Form. Remember that we will have no way of knowing who submitted the form, so we will not be able to follow-up with you to let you know how we addressed your feedback.
