September 11, 2021

Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) professors Ken Christensen and Rafael Perez are co-PIs on a $5M NSF grant to provide scholarships over five years to students with financial need who are majoring in computer science, computer engineering, cybersecurity, or information technology. The grant titled, S-STEM Flit-GAP or Florida IT Graduation Attainment Pathways, follows prior collaboration between the University of South Florida, Florida International University and the University of Central Florida. The USF share of this grant is $1.5 million of which $1 million is allocated for scholarships for USF CSE students. The scholarships are for rising juniors who are academically strong and have unmet financial need.
