CIPS Information - Fall 2005

CIPS Scholarship

Students majoring in the Department of Computer Science have several, but not enough, scholarships and bursaries that are given yearly to them. A scholarship is financial aid towards academic studies, awarded mainly on academic merit while a bursary is an award of money towards fees based on financial need. Each year, the local section of the Canadian Information Processing Society gives a Bursary of $1000 to a student who will join the information processing community. In 2001, five eligible candidates applied for the one prize. Coop students are eligible, even if they are on a work term. The deadline for applications is January 31, so start early on your letter of application. To be eligible, a student must have completed 60 hours of classes with at least 18 hours in Computer Science, maintaining an 80% average. They must be registered in at least 4 courses in the semester the award is held. Finally, they must submit an application along with a letter detailing their expected impact. The details for all undergraduate awards can be found through the Department's web page HERE. Graduate awards can be found

These include a Shell Canada Bursary and The Information Systems Management Scholarship which are available each year. Thanks to Shell Canada's donation to the "Building Dreams and Futures" campaign, we will have two new bursaries each year. For more information, contact Dr. Malek Mouhoub.
