Dean's Scholarship for Graduate Students

Award Amounts (2020-21): $2,400-$7,200

The Dean’s Scholarship provides financial support to deserving new students entering the Master of Science in Computer Science, Career Change Certificate in Computer Science Fundamentals, or the Graduate Certificate in Software Engineering programs. To be eligible for an award, students must enroll in a full-time program (6+ credits/quarter) and be an incoming student not currently enrolled at Seattle University.

The College of Science and Engineering offers two categories of awards: guaranteed merit awards based on an applicant’s GPA, and selected merit awards based on a holistic evaluation of an application. Please see below for information specific to your intended program. Both US and international students are eligible for awards.

 

Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) Program

Guaranteed Merit Awards: All students applying to a Seattle Uuniversity MSCS program (all specializations) with a 3.50+ GPA as evaluated by Seattle University will receive a $4,800 scholarship, awarded over three quarters.

Selected Merit Awards: All applicants will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for awards. Students evaluated below a 3.50 GPA remain eligible for scholarship consideration based on other factors in their application. Awards for incoming MSCS students go up to $7,200.

Current Seattle University students applying to the MSCS program are not eligible for guaranteed merit awards but may be awarded a selected merit award based on their application. This includes students who are bridging to the MSCS program from the Career Change Certificate in Computer Science Fundamentals program as well as current Seattle University undergraduate students enrolling in the 1-Year Fast Track MSCS program. Current Seattle University students should contact the department directly to inquire about scholarship opportunities.

Selected Merit Awards: All applicants will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for awards. Students evaluated below a 3.50 GPA remain eligible for scholarship consideration based on other factors in their application. Awards for incoming certificate students go up to $2,400.
