Terrence Cheng, the Director of the Stamford campus, is pleased to announce the addition of the FairHaven Scholarship at UConn Stamford. The scholarship is a highly competitive merit-based award for students who will be majoring in Computer Science. FairHaven Scholars will receive up to $10,000 per academic year: scholarships are renewable for 4 consecutive academic years, and are valued at a fixed amount determined on a yearly basis.
FairHaven Scholars will have an opportunity to take advantage of the many technology-based internships in Fairfield County and New York City, while working closely with the campus’s Center for Career Development on skills such as resume and cover letter writing, interviewing skills, elevator pitches, and more. FairHaven Scholars will also have a chance to work with academic advisors and professional mentors who will help them to establish personal networks and discover paths to future success.
