USA: Microsoft Scholarships for Computer Science and Related Fields

A Microsoft scholarship provides a leg up for undergraduate students in computer science and related technical disciplines. Microsoft is offering four different types of technical scholarships for the 2011-2012 academic year to current undergraduate students:

* General Scholarships
* Women's Scholarships
* Minority Scholarships
* Scholarships for Students with Disabilities

Final candidates are selected based on the following criteria:

* Eligibility
* Quality of application
* Displayed interest in the software industry
* Commitment to leadership
* Financial need

To be eligible, you must be enrolled full time in a Bachelor's degree program at a 4-year college or university in the United States, Canada, or Mexico at the time you submit the application. Plus, we'll need to see that you're making satisfactory progress toward an undergraduate degree in computer science, computer engineering, or a related technical
discipline such as electrical engineering, math, or physics--and that you 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.
