Computer Science features enough variety to appeal to people from all walks of life. The wide-ranging disciplines within the industry ensures that aspiring computer scientists are able to take advantage of their strengths while having the opportunity to expand and refine their skills. The challenges, the resilience and the rewards that exist in Computer Science closely mirror attributes that make up military life. Uniting these two worlds is a natural progression. AMVETS and Lowe’s want to support veterans, service members and military spouses advance in Computer Science as they set goals for themselves and surpass them.
An industry such as Computer Science that steadily attracts qualified individuals encourages the best and brightest candidates to push themselves to innovate and stand out from the crowd. How will you use your strengths to distinguish yourself from the competition? How will you demonstrate your ingenuity?
For eligible service members, veterans and spouses, AMVETS is offering 10 scholarships of $5,000. Scholarship applications will be accepted from August 3, 2020 through October 16, 2020.
