Scholarships for Currently Enrolled Undergraduate Students

If you are an incoming student, please view scholarships available for freshman and transfer students.

We offer several scholarships for current, full-time undergraduate students in all degree programs. These scholarships are not renewable. You must apply each year to be considered.

You must continue to be a School of Informatics and Computing major for the duration of the scholarship award period. If you switch to a major outside of SoIC at any time during the award period, your scholarship will be rescinded.

The scholarship committee meets after the application deadline to review applications. Scholarship recipients will be notified by email or through the online scholarship portal.

Here’s how to get started

  1. Take a look at the opportunities and requirements listed for your major.
  2. Log in and complete the general application.
  3. Then search for the opportunity for which you want to apply and complete the application for that scholarship. Submit all required information as noted in the application (FAFSA, letter of recommendation, essay, etc). Each scholarship may have different application requirements.
