Department Scholarships - APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED (will reopen in Spring 2023)

Department scholarships are typically available each academic year. Students are notified via email when these department scholarships are open and accepting applications. The email is usually sent out in April. Department scholarships include:

The Ralph E. Griswold Memorial Scholarship in Computer Science is intended to support a computer science major in good academic standing and may be facing additional challenges in college. If you are applying for this scholarship please address in your personal statement additional challenges you face due to socio-economic status.

The O'Donovan Scholarship in Computer Science is intended to support computer science students. There will be awards given to computer science majors at different career levels.

The donor established this scholarship to encourage and assist students dedicated to pursuing a career in computer science. The recipient must be a junior or senior in Computer Science with a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0. The scholarship is limited to one academic year, although a junior who received the scholarship may be awarded again as a senior if he/she still meets the eligibility requirements. Scholarship awards are to be based on scholastic merit and personal character of the recipient without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, age, or creed. Recipients must be enrolled full-time.


The Department of Computer Science scholarship application process for the 2022-2023 academic year is now closed. The next deadline will be in Spring 2023 (date to be announced here) for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Questions regarding the application process may be sent to Martin Marquez.

The Program Fee Scholarship

Students may be considered for the Computer Science program fee scholarship award, which is available to any financially eligible computer science major. To be considered, students must have financial need, and:

  • must submit the FAFSA before the first day of the semester
  • do not have any other institutional aid that may be decreased due to receiving the award
  • are in good academic standing (above a 2.0 cumulative UA GPA)

No application is necessary; funds are awarded based on financial need. Students awarded the program fee scholarship will have the amount credited to their student account and will be notified by a CS staff member via University of Arizona email.
