We strongly encourage underrepresented groups to pursue STEM fields of study. Because we greatly value a broad range of perspectives and contributions, a large majority of our scholarships will be awarded to female students, underrepresented minority students (African-American, Hispanic or Native American etc.) or students with disabilities. We will review all applications and select final candidates on the holistic basis of eligibility, quality of application, demonstrated passion for STEM, commitment to leadership and financial need.
Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a bachelor's degree program at a four-year college or university in the United States, Canada or Mexico, show satisfactory progress toward an undergraduate degree in computer science, computer engineering or a related technical discipline such as electrical engineering, math, or physics, be able to demonstrate an interest in computer science, and must maintain a 3.0 GPA.
All applicants are required to apply for a Microsoft internship and, if offered, must accept and complete the internship. Microsoft reserves the right not to offer an internship position to the scholarship recipient if an appropriate match cannot be found.
