  2. After completing your Loyola University Maryland application, you will need to use your Applicant Status Page login credentials sent to you via email to complete the online CPaMS Scholars application.
  3. Please complete the application by the deadline for consideration:
    • Early Action Deadline: January 9, 2022. Note that if you applied to Loyola early action, you must apply to CPaMS by this deadline.
    • Regular Decision Deadline: February 10, 2022

Application Requirements

  • Interested students must plan to major in computer science, physics, mathematics, statistics, or data science. Data science majors must choose a technical focus within the major's course choices.
  • The scholarship will be up to $10,000 annually for up to four years. The actual amount of the scholarship will depend on financial need determined by Loyola’s office of financial aid. To be considered for a scholarship as part of being a CPaMS Scholar, applicants must complete their Profile and FAFSA as detailed by Financial Aid.
  • To remain in the CPaMS Scholars program, students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in the courses required for the major; continue to major in computer science, physics, mathematics, or statistics; and complete a set of planned courses associated with the program.
