The IUP Army ROTC program offers STEM scholarships to eligible students interested in becoming officers in the United States Army. As early as junior year of high school, students can compete for four-year national-based scholarships, or students already in college can compete
for four-, three-, or two-year campus-based scholarships. Each scholarship that is awarded comes with a contract, which is a formal commitment to the Army to learn, train, and be commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant. Army career placement is competitive and can be in the active component, U.S. Army Reserves, or the
Army National Guard. Students can compete for a variety of different fields such as cyber security, military intelligence, or Signal Corps.
The Department of Computer Science offers the Outstanding Freshman Scholarship to assist in tuition fees for the first semester at IUP. The award is based on excellent academic record in high school and advanced placement in SAT scores. If you are considering coming to
IUP and have done well in high school, contact the chair of Computer Science to be considered for this scholarship.
