The Florida Tech Office of Financial Aid helps students pay for college by helping to identify sources of financial aid such as scholarships, grants, and loans.
In general, most scholarships are handled by the university, rather than by the Computer Science department. All first-year students are considered for scholarships.
Assistantships are a form of financial assistance granted through part-time academic employment, usually to graduate students, but not excluding undergraduates. This can include being a grader, a teaching assistant, or even a research assistant to a professor.
