ROSE-BUD’s goal is to enhance diversity among academically talented computer science, computer, electrical, and software engineering majors. The program specifically seeks to help students with a demonstrated financial need, with an emphasis on women and minorities.
The ROSE-BUD scholarship is open to incoming freshmen majoring in Computer Science, Computer, Electrical, or Software Engineering. The maximum ROSE-BUD scholarship is $10,000 per academic year and the amount awarded will be based on the Rose-BUD application in conjunction with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the RHIT admission application.
ROSE-BUD Scholars will retain their scholarships as long as they maintain a GPA of at least 2.75, remain enrolled full-time in one of the selected majors and participate in the required activities. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for the Rose-BUD Scholarship.
The ROSE-BUD program provides financial support, advising, mentoring, networking, and professional development.
We have created special support mechanisms for both scholarship recipients and current Rose- Hulman students to help them prepare for summer internships and research experiences. As a ROSE-BUD scholar, you will have the opportunity to interact with professionals and upper-classmen through networking and mentoring. And we will conduct several workshops and seminars each academic year.
