As computer science technologies and systems increasingly dominate every area of modern life, graduates in this field are likely to find themselves in ever higher demand. And as this “subject of the future” grows scope and popularity, there are also growing numbers of dedicated scholarships for computer science students on offer, including funding to study computer science at some of the world’s most prestigious institutions.

Below is a list of computer science scholarships and other funding opportunities for those studying degrees in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), focusing on opportunities in the US and the UK. We’ve also listed some scholarships specifically targeted at women in computer science, which aim to support more balanced gender representation in the sector.
