Tuition scholarships for new students have been provided by Florida's Great Northwest. Students admitted into the Software Engineering program starting summer and fall semesters who are Florida residents--residing in Northwest Florida--are eligible to apply for these scholarships. Students selected for these scholarships will receive 80% of their tuition paid through the scholarship for courses taken during the 2010 summer and fall semesters. Students awarded this scholarship starting in the summer semester will automatically receive this scholarship in the fall semester if they earn a B or better in all summer courses. Interested candidates may apply by submitting the 2010 SE Scholarship Application.
Two new scholarship cohorts partially funded through Florida's Great Northwest for Florida residents started Fall 2009 and Spring 2010. These students will earn a Master of Science degree in Computer Science - Software Engineering specialization. Students in these cohorts have been loaned laptop computers with all necessary software preloaded.
A five-semester cohort of 20 part-time students will receive 80% of their tuition through scholarship funding for the first four of five semesters while earning their Master's degree. These students will be expected to take two online courses per semester and will graduate May 2011.
