  • First preference is given to a student who is a Computer Science major and an employee, or dependent of a current employee, of ACS Technologies in Florence, SC.
  • If no such candidate exists, the recipient must major in Computer Science and must be a full-time junior or senior with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.

Previous recipients are eligible for repeat awards provided all qualifications are met.

All recipients will be selected by the FMU Financial Assistance Committee.

COMPUTER SCIENCE LEARNING COMMUNITY

The Computer Science Learning Community is a center that the students of Francis Marion can use as a quiet place to study, get tutoring help, hold meetings, and hone their programming skills. Students will also receive a daily email from ACM Tech News which highlights technonlgy based information that circulates through news outlets. The email also provides job information for students who are wondering what career they want to pursue with their new found knowledge.
