Thirteen graduate students and four undergraduates in MCS have received Presidential Fellowships and Scholarships. In 2014, CMU leadership launched the Presidential Fellowship & Scholarship program to provide critical financial support to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students across all of Carnegie Mellon's seven colleges and schools. Presidential Scholarships provide undergraduate students partial support for tuition and fees.
