David Dewitt Undergraduate Scholarship

Each year, the CS Department awards multiple David DeWitt Scholarships to recognize academic excellence among undergraduate Computer Sciences Majors. Each award is worth $8000, and students must be continuing in the UW undergraduate CS program next year (not graduating or transferring in the current semester). The primary criteria for this award is academic excellence.
