Master of Computer Science Scholarships

The scholarships available at the graduate level for computer science students are, at the university level, often driven by the ambitions and aspirations of the academic department. Scholarship in the area of computer science, computing theory and computer design is very active and highly competitive. The goal of many computer science scholarship programs is to entice the brightest graduate students into a PhD program or at the very least, involve them in research. However there are national programs dedicated to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) degrees that align with many computer science, information science and IT degrees. There are also a number of technology companies that underwrite scholarship programs in their areas of endeavor. And there are endowed scholarships administered by individual schools that you'll not learn about unless you speak with your school's student financial aid office about the availability of support for a graduate degree in your field.

1. SMART Scholarship Program has been developed by various agencies within the Department of Defense to support undergraduate and graduate students in one of the STEM academic areas: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The program pays full cost of tuition and fees, provides a paid summer internship, a $1,000 book allowance per year, and an additional cash award to cover expenses. Students are expected to work in one of the Department of Defense research facilities for two years. Among the eligible academic disciplines are the information sciences and computer science.

2. AFCEA Educational Foundation was established by the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) in order to provide financial support for graduate students working towards a degree that may help them to contribute to the U.S. intelligence gathering organizations. There are no requirements for service tied to these scholarships, but the organization encourages scholarship recipients in developing a career associated with one of the many agencies that provide intelligence to the military and homeland security organizations.

3. Datatel Scholars Foundation is a non-profit arm of the Datatel Corporation, which provides communications equipment and consulting services to organizations and institutions, many of which are universities. The scholarship program is for undergraduate and graduate students attending eligible Datatel client institutions. Awards range from $1,000 to $2,400, and there are dozens of recipients each year. There is a list of client institutions available on the Datatel website.

4. International Society of Automation has several scholarship programs for undergraduates and graduates who are enrolled in an academic program in automation or in a degree program related to the field. There is an Educational Foundation that provides one set of scholarships, there are divisions within the organization defined by their professional fields that have their own scholarship awards, and there are scholarship programs that have been established by local and regional organizations within the national structure.

5. Semiconductor Research Corporation operates a scholarship and fellowship program for master's degree candidates and doctoral students who are studying in an area of relevance to microelectronics and the semiconductor industry. The program for the master's degree students primarily supports women and members of minority groups who are underrepresented in the industry. Applicants should give consideration to the organization's interest in research.
