Webucator Scholarships for Computer Science Students

Program Overview

Webucator's Scholarships aim to support students who are studying Computer Science. Scholarships were awarded to eligible students who showed the greatest potential for leadership in the field of computer science. Leadership can be shown in a variety of ways - through education, innovation, communication, and more. As an example, a high school English teacher with a good understanding of computer programming can help her school make better use of technology in education. Our scholarships are not limited to students who plan to go into the field of computer science, but are open to all students who study computer science with the intention of using the knowledge gained to provide leadership in their chosen field.
