McMaster entrance scholarships for computer science, technology and engineering

Students who are applying to STEM programs at McMaster are reminded that the deadline for scholarship applications is February 14. Many awards are available.

Thirty-eight Dean’s Excellence Entrance Scholarships (valued at $7,500) will be given to exceptional students entering engineering, technology or computer science. There are also generous scholarships for students who have participated in DECA or Shad. The Big Ideas Scholarship (valued at $12,000) can be given on top of any other awards.

In addition, one hundred Undergraduate Summer Research Awards, funding full-time paid research positions, will be available for incoming undergraduate students who apply for these scholarships.

Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of academic excellence (an admission average of 90-94%), demonstrated leadership experience, and involvement in extracurricular and service activities.

The online form can be found here.  Two letters of reference are required; any interested applicants should contact Ms. Berndsen as she has the email address to which references can be sent. On-campus interviews will be held for top-ranked candidates.
