The School of Computing (SoC) offers tuition waiver and merit-based scholarships to pre- and full-computer science and computer engineering majors who are currently enrolled at the University of Utah. Awards are available for full-time students for fall and spring semesters only. CS/CE scholarship applicants are also eligible for scholarships awarded through the College of Engineering (COE). Note that some COE scholarships require additional essays, but only one application is required for all SoC and COE scholarships. The scholarship application deadline is February 1 each year, for the following fall and spring semesters.
BS/ MS students are eligible to apply for School of Computing Scholarships, but are only eligible to receive undergraduate scholarship funding while they are in the undergraduate portion of the program.
