It's that time again... school will be starting back up again, the sleep deprivation and Top Ramen consumption will ramp back up, and if you don't have some help with the finances, you're bank account will be nice and empty. Good times! Fortunately, you still have a few weeks to get your application in for a scholarship through Microsoft.
We’re making it easier for future computer scientists to excel in what they love to do. A Microsoft scholarship provides a leg up so you can pursue studies in computer science and related technical disciplines. You’ll join other scholarship recipients from the United States, Canada, and Mexico who share the passion for software and academic excellence. It all adds up to achieving your primary goal—to make a real difference in the software industry.
Microsoft is offering four different types of technical scholarships for the 2008-2009 academic year to current undergraduate students: General Scholarships, Women's Scholarships, Underrepresented Minority Scholarships, and Scholarships for Students with Disabilities.
