CPaMS Scholars is based on building a community for academically talented students majoring in Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Data Science, or Physics. As a cohort, Scholars share certain activities and courses during their four years, while also having a group of mentors and advisors to guide them through college life and to inform them about opportunities beyond Loyola. As a result, a natural support network will be created for each Scholar made up of faculty and peer students.
The CPaMS Scholars Program also provides scholarships annually for students in the program who demonstrate financial need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid to study computer science, physics, mathematics, statistics, or data science at Loyola University Maryland. Financial need is not necessary to join our program, and the admission decision does not take financial need into account.
"CPaMS is preparing me to succeed in a career in STEM. CPaMS faculty organize and inform students of events to help us find internships and learn more about our potential career paths. My professors care about my future, and they want me to be ready to work and have the experience required to succeed."
—Jeffrey Umanzor, CPaMS Scholar
