CSMP Scholarship Program @ CCSU
In the Fall of 2014, Central Connecticut State University will continue offering scholarships to qualified students enrolled in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics (CSMP) programs. These scholarships are funded through the National Science Foundation program Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM), award DUE-0630953 and DUE-1060352. CCSU scholarship program was selected for funding from nearly 400 proposals. Funding for this grant demonstrates the quality of CSMP programs at Central Connecticut State University.
Over the next four years, our program will award at least 20 scholarships annually. Qualified students majoring in computer science, mathematics or physics will receive up to $5,400 per academic year. Each scholarship can be renewed for the subsequent year - therefore, qualified students can receive over $21,000 during four years through this program.
Our CSMP scholarship program has a number of special features designed to help students receiving the scholarship succeed in their studies and prepare them for entering high tech employment fields or a graduate school upon graduation. These features include:
- Individual mentoring and advising by dedicated faculty
- Specialized tutoring
- Peer mentoring
- Participation in research projects
- Field trips
- Guest lectures by leaders of industry and research
- Internships with leading employers
- Career opportunities in high demand fields
