Apply for a Partial Scholarship

* Only applicable to out-of-state teachers or MA teachers who are not teaching in an AP format. Those who are receiving College Board funding are not eligible for a Mobile CSP scholarship. Our scholarship is only applicable to tuition cost.

The Mobile CSP Project has a limited amount of scholarships available to participating schools and teachers. These scholarships are intended for teachers in school districts that cannot afford the tuition. Scholarships will prioritize schools that have never offered computer science, serve underrepresented students, and have high percentages of free-and-reduced lunch students. If chosen to receive a scholarship, teachers will have half the cost of their tuition covered. Teachers will be responsible for paying the remaining portion. Mobile CSP will provide instructions for payment after your application has been reviewed. Do not submit payment until you receive a decision on your scholarship application.

To complete an application for a scholarship, access the following page: mobile-csp.org/scholarships.
