Dean's Scholarship:  Masters Degree in Computer Science

This highly competitive scholarship reduces the tuition of out-of-state residents to the in-state amount for all 30 credit hours of the master's degree program in computer science.  Awardees are required to produce a thesis and also work approximately 5 hours per week doing tutoring or grading for the department.  Awards may be offered to students after their first semester of enrollment, based on GPA, test scores and willingness to commit to thesis research.  Scholarship awards are no longer offered to newly admitted M.S. students.
