Give to CS Visionary Scholarships

Build the talent pipeline.

Computer science underpins nearly every aspect of modern life. The arts, science, business, medicine, and engineering all benefit from the computational power, modeling, and thinking found in computer science. We are looking for advocates, partners, and participants for our outreach programs that will help inform K-12 educators, prospective students, and their families about the fascinating and fun applications of CS.

Give to CS K-12 Outreach Programs

Sustain excellence & seed innovation.

Recurring gifts of all sizes are essential to support our areas of greatest need, especially those that require an agile response. Annual Funds supplement scholarship and fellowship offers, outreach programming, and sending students to top conferences and technical competitions. Alumni giving also functions as a measure of the department's strength and affects our national rankings.
