Screen Shot 2015-12-19 at 11.08.14 AM

Microsoft awards college tuition scholarships each year to encourage students to pursue studies in Computer Science and related STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) disciplines. Recipients will be awarded in recognition of their demonstrated passion for technology, academic excellence and leadership while working to push the software industry forward. This scholarship opportunity is open to undocumented students. As long as you are currently enrolled at a four-year program at an institution in US, Mexico or Canada and meet all other criteria for scholarship eligibility, you can apply regardless of your citizenship.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be enrolled full time in a bachelor’s degree program at a four-year college or university in the United States, Canada or Mexico at the time you submit the application.
  • Show satisfactory progress toward an undergraduate degree in computer science, computer engineering or a related technical discipline such as electrical engineering, math, or physics.
  • Be able to demonstrate an interest in computer science. Because the scholarship is merit-based, you must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average out of a possible 4.0, or a 4.0 cumulative grade point average out of a possible 5.0. Chosen recipients will be asked to provide a copy of their official transcript.

The deadline to apply is January 31, 2016

For more information, and to apply, please visit their official website: “Microsoft Scholarship
