Fully Funded Masters Degree Scholarship in Computer Science in the United States

There are very few Universities in the United States that offer full funding or scholarships to masters students in Computer Science from the first semester. Ph.D. applicants are usually given priority for funding or scholarships. If you apply to top research universities, you may be offered funding or scholarships, usually in your second semester but for some applicants, getting fully funded or a scholarship from the first semester is very important else they would not be able to pursue their master's degree in the United States because of the cost.

What is funding and how does it work?

Funding or scholarships usually comes in form of Teaching Assistantship (TA) or a Research Assistantship(RA). In the case of a Teaching Assistantship, in addition to your graduate school work, you would be required to perform tasks such as grading tests and quizzes, assisting undergraduate students in the lab and so on while in the case of a Research Assistantship you would be required to assist a Professor in his/her research work by doing tasks like simulations, writing programming code, setting up experiments and so on. Both RA's and TA's are usually expected to work for 15 to 20 hours a week.
