General Questions from a potential applicant

Postby amstrudy » Sat Jul 01, 2017 10:50 pm

Hello! After finding scant amounts of information on College Confidential, this forum is a godsend!

I'm a rising senior trying to figure out how to afford college out of state, and the SMART scholarship popped up on my radar. I'm curious about the kind of work that a Computer Science student would be doing over the summer and during Phase 2? I was reading another post about the work experience not being worth it because it was a lot of engineering management, and I'm curious if that's true for CS as well? I've also been looking into the NSA equivalent of this program (Stokes Scholarship). Does anyone have experience with that and how do these two programs compare?
Has anyone done SMART for all 4 years of undergrad?

Thanks so much! This is a HUGE scholarship opportunity and I'm very curious.

You must already have your diploma to apply so you're not eligible during your Freshman year of college. You can apply during your Freshman year for the scholarship to begin your Sophomore year.
