UPE and the ACM wish to encourage academic excellence for students in the computing and information disciplines. UPE initiated this award with ACM I order to raise the importance of academic achievement and professional commitment to ACM student members who are about to enter the computing profession.
UPE provides four awards of $1,000 each for the UPE/ACM Scholarship Awards. Winners will also receive a certificate of commendation from UPE.
Who is Eligible: All graduate and undergraduate students (past 12th grade, college-level and above), who are ACM members and also members of the ACM Student Chapter at their academic institution.
Criteria: ACM student members who are full-time students, and members of an ACM Student Chapter at an academic institution. The primary judging categories for these two awards are the applicant’s academic records (official transcripts must be attached to each application), the tone of the faculty member’s recommendation, and the applicant’s ACM Chapter and/or department-related activities. Questions related to these awards can be directed to Sunita Jaswal at the ACM Headquarters.
Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) was first organized at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in 1967. The international organization now consists of chapters in various colleges and universities in North America and overseas.
ACM brings together computing educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources, and address the field’s challenges. As the world’s largest computing society, ACM strengthens the profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. ACM supports the professional growth of its members by providing opportunities for life‐long learning, career development, and professional networking.
