This page contains information geared for current MS-ACS students. If you are seeking general information about the MS degree, combined degree offerings, or digital badges, please see https://www.gvsu.edu/acad/applied-computer-science-ms.htm.
GVSU is not a research university, and thus our assistantship and scholarship opportunities are limited. Instead, we offer the opportunity of graduate internships with local companies. We don't "place" students with companies, but our students seldom struggle to find an internship where they can apply their computing skills. Furthermore, internships are paid and may lead to permanent employment after the degree is completed.
As for assistantships, we normally do not award assistantships to new students. Instead, we often reserve assistantship positions for our established graduate students who have been successful in the classroom. However, when a new open GA position becomes available the graduate program director will email all graduate students letting them know of the opportunity.
Finally, for scholarships, GVSU has a few that are specific to computing. You can browse the entire list of scholarships at https://gvsu.academicworks.com.
