Computer Sciences

As the nation’s second-oldest Department of Computer Sciences, we’re defined by our track record of cutting-edge research, driven students, and pioneering alumni. For 60 years, our competitive curricula and outreach programs have supported a growing workforce of computer science professionals here in Wisconsin — and beyond. 

Today, we’re the most popular major at one of the world’s leading universities, where we’re training the next generation of computing professionals. Yet as state and federal sources of support for the university shrink, private support plays an increasingly critical role in maintaining this level of excellence.

Your gift, of any size, will help us remain a top department by supporting initiatives like: 

  • Scholarships for outstanding undergraduates and top graduate recruits
  • Summer research assistantships 
  • Graduate fellowships for PhD students 

Your Investment Drives Possibilities

  • $35 covers a student’s participation fee for a national competition.
  • $250 pays for a student to attend a professional conference.
  • $1,000 provides a scholarship to a deserving student.
  • $2,500 funds a month of summer research for a student.

Help us train the next generation of computational leaders by making your gift today.
