Welcome prospective students! This webpage is designed to help you learn more about specific scholarship awards and opportunities available to new engineering students at the Baskin School of Engineering, UC Santa Cruz.
Unfortunatley, no ACCESS Scholarships will be offered for the 2012-13 Academic year. However, students admitted at the Frosh level for Fall 2012 may still be considered for the ACCESS Scholars Learning Community. Students with and without financial need may apply to the ACCESS Scholars community. Students with demonstrated financial need may be considered for a scholarship award at a later time, should funds become available.
ACCESS SCHOLARS COMMUNITY APPLICATIONS DEADLINE: APRIL 15, 2012
The application for the 2012 ACCESS Community is available on-line.
The Baskin School of Engineering offers need-based scholarship awards to incoming first-year students in the Computer Science: Computer Game Design major. The goal of the scholarship program is to recruit and retain top-quality, financially disadvantaged students, especially women, into the Computer Game Design program as entering frosh. Scholarships of up to $10,000 will be awarded to eligible students for fall 2012. Students who wish to be considered for the Sony Scholarship for Computer Game Design should indicate their interest in the major as their first choice for the Santa Cruz campus on the UC application. Students must also complete all federal and university financial aid forms in order to be considered.
The Amy Beth Snader Memorial Scholarship was established in 1992 in honor of its namesake, an alumna of UCSC in Computer and Information Sciences, with the purpose to help women undergraduates in Computer Science. The goal of the scholarship is to attract more women to UCSC to pursue engineering degrees, though male and female applicants are considered for this award. Amy Beth Snader scholarships are renewable awards that provide up to $16,000 of financial support over four years (up to $4,000 each year for four years) for students who continue to meet eligibility requirements. Students who wish to be considered for the Snader Scholarship should indicate a BSOE major or the undeclared advising cluster “Engineering and Computing.” Students must also complete all required federal and state financial aid forms in order to be considered.
