In 2015, the Center for Networked Systems established the Alan Turing Memorial Scholarship the first of its kind in the nation, for enrolled UC San Diego undergraduate students majoring in computer science or computer engineering, public policy, communications and other programs touching on networked systems and who are active in supporting the LGBTQIA+ community. In addition to receiving a $2,000 scholarship, recipients are also provided with an opportunity to carry out guided research under the direction of one of the center’s faculty mentors.
The Alan Turing Memorial Scholarship will be awarded in the fall quarter of 2019 for the 2019-2020 academic year. In addition to the requirements listed above, preference is given to students with demonstrated academic merit, financial need, and experience or interest in research.
If awarded this scholarship, you will need to provide a two or three sentence public statement about how you have actively supported the LGBTQIA+ community through your identity, relationships and/or work.
