Your Support and Engagement Make a Difference!

Please consider helping the GVSU School of Computing provide a high-quality learning experience for today’s students—and tomorrow’s professionals—by sharing your treasures through financial support.

While we are fortunate to have several scholarship funds that have been established to maintain the special elements of our programs, help support our continued growth, and assist our students, the School of Computing is currently only able to support about 10% of our students. In times of ever-rising education costs, your support could help us grow these funds, support many more students, and provide the same outstanding experience each of our alumni had while studying at GVSU.

Search for scholarships for which you feel the greatest connection through the Find a Fund web page, or follow the program-specific links below.
