One of the goals of the program is to build diversity among computer science, computer, electrical and software engineering students. The ROSE-BUD program is a scholarship and professional development program available to academically talented students majoring in computer science, computer, electrical or software engineering who demonstrate a financial need with special emphasis on women and minorities.

Eligible students are freshmen with a demonstrated financial need who have been accepted to Rose-Hulman. The ROSE-BUD program will provide financial support, advising, mentoring, networking and professional development. To be eligible for the ROSE-BUD Scholarship Program students must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Be accepted to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
  • Major in Computer Science, Computer, Electrical or Software Engineering
  • Demonstrate high academic qualifications and professionalism
  • Be eligible to receive financial aid and demonstrate an unmet need


Special support mechanisms have been developed for both scholarship recipients and current Rose-Hulman students to help them prepare for summer internships and research experiences. The students will also have the opportunity to interact with professionals and upper-classmen through networking and mentoring. Several workshops and seminars designed around personal and professional development will be held each academic year.
