Computer Science and Tech Scholarships

The technology sector is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects a 15% increase in computer and IT specialist jobs between 2019-2029, which translates into an additional 557,100 new tech jobs through 2026. Meanwhile, software developer jobs are expected to grow 22% between 2019-2029, which amounts to approximately 316,00 new jobs through 2029. It should come as no surprise then that computing jobs are the #1 source of new wages in the US.

Mirroring this meteoric rise, conferred degrees in computer science related majors have risen 51% from 2012-2017. And while computer science graduates earn 40% more than the average college graduate, you have to be able to pay for college first. The median tuition cost for a computer science major attending an in-state public university is approximately $7,000, while the median tuition cost for a computer science major attending an out-of-state private university is about $34,000. To help reduce this financial burden, scholarships and grants are excellent resources to take advantage of.

To make things easier for you, we’ve assembled this scholarship list exclusively for those interested in pursuing a career in computer science or tech. These scholarships are unique to Bold.org and will not be found anywhere else. Select one of the featured scholarships from the list above and start sending out applications today!

I am so grateful for the opportunities Bold.org has provided me to help fund my college education. The options are endless, and their commitment to helping and profiling successful students is remarkable.

My college education has and continues to be the most formative experience of my life, and the support and advocacy offered on Bold.org is the greatest recognition I can receive as a student.
