Scholarships, Internships, and Opportunities

Computer Science Undergraduate and Graduate Studies

There are a number of resources on campus to assist and reward deserving students. We encourage you to visit the Office of Scholarships to determine if there is a program for you. Scholarship and fellowship programs can be merit-based, needs-based, student-specific (e.g., international, transfer students, female students, first generation college students), career-specific, or discipline-specific.

Before submitting your application packet, you should seek constructive review from your mentors or advisors. Putting together a strong packet often requires several revisions.


Full-time graduate students who wish to receive a teaching assistantship must complete an online application form. Ph.D. applicants will be offered an assistantship (teaching or research), if funding is available.

Students are encouraged to contact faculty in their area of interest to determine if research assistantships are available.


The UTEP CyberCorps® Scholarship for Service (SFS) program provides scholarships to  support graduate students in the Master’s of Science in Software Engineering (MSSwE) and the Ph.D. in CS programs.  Undergraduates enrolled in the Fast-Track Dual Credit program may also qualify to receive an SFS Scholarship.


In addition to the Office of Scholarships, there are thee other sites that may be of interest to you.  These three sites are Computer Science Scholarships, Financial Aid & Scholarships for Online Students, and Engineering Scholarships.


Female undergraduate students may apply online for funding to travel to the Women in Cyber-Security 2017 Conference.


The S-STEM scholarship program provides financial support to Computer Science students with high academic potential. In addition to the financial support, the program engages students in co-curricular activities focused on cyber-security and professional development that prepares participants for future careers.
