Student Scholarship Award

Every year, Softinventive Lab offers a merit-based scholarship award to a student of computer engineering or computer science. We are doing this because we know how expensive it may be for a young man or woman to pay their tuition, and every little bit helps. Our program is available for US high-school seniors, graduates and college students.


For 2021, the award is 1000 USD, granted to 1 selected student.

Past recipients

For 2020, our scholarship went to Purdue University's first-year computer science student Ishaan Raja. What impressed us most about Ishaan was his essay detailing his commitment to the discipline through writing helpful applications and teaching IT to younger students. We're sure that his is a bright future.
