Computer Science: Additional Funding Opportunities

The Computer Science Program is committed to making graduate study at Mills as affordable and accessible as possible. The following program-specific sources of financial aid are available in addition to those outlined on our financial aid for graduate students page.

Graduate & Teaching Assistantships

A graduate or teaching assistantship in computer science can help cover up to 25 percent of your annual tuition. To be considered for a computer science assistantship, indicate that you plan to apply for financial aid in the additional questions section of the Mills graduate application and then complete your FAFSA.

  • Master's program: submit your FAFSA by February 1 (fall application) or November 1 (spring application) to receive priority consideration for these assistantships.
  • Post-bac certificates program: submit your FAFSA by February 15 (fall application) or November 1 (spring application) to receive priority consideration for these assistantships.

If you are DACA-eligible or otherwise unable to submit a FAFSA online, contact the Office of Graduate Admissions to learn about alternate documentation. You can reach us at 510.430.3309 or grad-admission@mills.edu.

AmeriCorps Matching Grant

Mills supports AmeriCorps alumnae by providing up to $5,500 in matching funds to cover the costs of graduate study. To qualify for this grant, you must be accepted to Mills, attend full time, and submit a copy of your AmeriCorps voucher when you apply for financial aid.
