Masters in Software Engineering Scholarships and Grants

Masters in Software Engineering Scholarships and Grants

A rule of thumb in the world of college scholarships and grants is that there are far more scholarships available for undergraduates than for graduates, but that the size of the scholarships at the graduate level tends to be greater. Institutions and organizations that grant scholarships or that manage scholarship endowments understand that graduate school can be more expensive and that graduate students often carry financial burdens as adults that incoming college undergrads do not.

The traditional universities will usually maintain a database of scholarship opportunities that pass through the school's financial aid office. Major corporations such as Siemens or Intel often create scholarship programs that make certain sums available to single universities on an annual basis and then allow the schools to select the recipients. That's why it is worth hounding your school's financial aid office about scholarships and grants as well as loans, and to do so early in the application process. We have assembled a sampler here of quality scholarship opportunities for students pursuing a masters in software engineering. There are many more to be found.

1. The International Society for Automation has several scholarship programs for both undergraduates and graduate students who are pursuing degrees related to automation or control systems. This is an industry oriented organization with heavy participation from the chemical industry, oil, pharmaceuticals, food, and other industries that rely on heat and flow control. Students who are enrolled in a software engineering masters degree online qualify for these scholarships, as there is not a single industrial automation system today that isn't driven by a software program.

2. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is a large organization that offers a range of undergraduate and graduate scholarships. The various programs have been established by the organization itself or endowed by individual or corporate members. Some of the programs are available to software engineers; specifically the IEEE Computer Society scholarship grants which go to twenty student members of the organization annually.

3. The National Society of Professional Engineers offers scholarships to engineering students in all phases of educational pursuit. The graduate opportunities are not as numerous as those for undergraduates but the Society recognizes all facets of the engineering field, from the traditional fields of civil and mechanical engineering to the newer fields of computer engineering and software.

4. Morgan Stanley Information Technology Scholarships are composed of three scholarship programs, one of which is for women in technology and one that is designated for minority applicants. All of these programs invite applications from undergraduate, upper division students who may be headed into a fifth year program. A graduate degree in software engineering is considered a fifth year program for students who are completing a related undergraduate degree.

5. Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) is a private non-profit organization that has an educational foundation supporting several scholarship programs. The organization has one hundred forty six chapters, some of which offer scholarships as well. All of the programs are technology oriented, and there is one bank of scholarships designated for students in online programs that are for degrees in (among other things) systems engineering, computer science, or technology management. Online masters in software engineering degree would be a natural fit for this program.
