COMPUTER SCIENCE SCHOLARSHIPS
Students must complete the general FMU Scholarship Application at the beginning of the spring semester. This form may be obtained from the Financial Assistance Office and the deadline for its submission is March 1st. The criteria for awarding the ACS Technologies scholarship are as follows:
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 technology 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.
