Scholarships and Awards

The Department of Information Science (IS) offers financial support and scholarships to its undergraduate and graduate students to recognize exceptional academic and creative accomplishments.  Alumni and friends of the Department of Information Science have been generous in providing financial support for student scholarships. 


The IS Excellence and Endowed scholarships are competitive two-semester scholarships based on merit, and require the submission of an IS scholarship application. These scholarships are available to all degree seeking students in the IS program. The eligibility criteria for each of the endowed scholarships is available on the Criteria and Eligibility page.
