Microsoft College Careers Scholarship

Funds a year of undergraduate tuition for computer science majors.

Microsoft awards tuition scholarships and conference scholarships each year to encourage students to pursue studies in Computer Science and related STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) disciplines. Recipients for both scholarships will be awarded in recognition of their demonstrated passion for technology, academic excellence, and leadership while working to push the software industry forward.

Microsoft strongly encourages underrepresented groups to pursue STEM fields of study because we greatly value a broad range of perspectives and contributions. The company is especially committed to offering scholarships to those individuals from backgrounds that may historically have been underrepresented in the technical field, and they prioritize scholarship applications that demonstrate exceptional leadership work in the promotion of diversity in STEM disciplines at their university.
