Department of Computer Science
Computer Science Department (1000111)
Computer Science Department Foundation funds are used to directly help students by defraying the cost of materials needed by students who conduct these projects and the expenses incurred by students who present this work at regional or national professional conferences. Funds are also used to support faculty requests and general department needs.
Computer Science Scholarship (1000876)
This endowment account provides for general scholarship funds to be awarded to outstanding students majoring in Computer Science.
Malcolm G. Lane Scholarship Endowment for Computer Science (1001091)
The Malcolm G. Lane Scholarship honors the contributions of former department head Malcolm Lane by recognizing outstanding junior or senior Computer Science majors. This scholarship provides financial resources annually to one or more students who will be in their junior or senior year of undergraduate studies. To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must (a) have a declared major in Computer Science; and (b) have a grade point average of 3.25 or higher (on a 4.0 scale)at James Madison University after at least two semesters of study (at the time the student is considered for this scholarship).
Department of Engineering
Department of Engineering (1000364)
Funds are always needed to help students engage in more relevant and meaningful engineering design, research, and service learning projects. Each year, we expect Engineering students to apply their skills and knowledge to real-world, human problems. From the first freshman design competition, through the Introduction to Engineering course, to the six semesters of Engineering Design, every student team is expected to design and prototype real engineering products and processes. We welcome donations that could be used to help defray the cost of materials needed by students who participate in these projects. By participating in these types of projects, many of our students will also qualify to present their work at regional or national engineering conferences. We also welcome donations that can be used to help defray the cost of student conference travel. The faculty, students, and staff of the JMU Department of Engineering would like to thank you in advance for any support you can provide for these important and transformative student experiences.
