Called SPICES (Students Promoting Interest in Computing Supported by Educational Scholarships), the program offers up to four years of support for freshmen and two years of support for transfer students. The maximum award amount is $10,000 per academic year.
The program provides SPICES scholars with faculty-to-scholar and peer-to-peer mentoring, research and internship opportunities and communication and leadership opportunities.
SPICES is funded by the National Science Foundation Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) project.
The application deadline is August 11, 2011.
