GoMK Computer Science Scholarship

Go Mechanical Keyboard is here because programmers built its components. Our site reviews products that programmers use constantly. They are a massive portion of our traffic. We’re thankful for their existence.

With that in mind, it is our pleasure to support students entering computer science programs. University isn’t cheap, and being crippled with debt will only cause performance-degrading stress after graduation. Taking some of the load off, even if it’s a small amount, could mean the difference between exceptional progress and stagnation. GoMK wants the former. Apply for our scholarship. We want to invest in you — our future.

Award Information

The GoMK Computer Science Scholarship will start at $1,000 US and grow on a yearly basis. All undergraduate or postgraduate computer science students can apply. Preference will be given to educational paths that place an emphasis on programming.

The application period opens on May 24th, 2017 and closes on November 1st, 2017. We’ll be reviewing all applicants, and rewarding the scholarship to one individual on December 29th, 2017.

  1. Must currently be an undergraduate or postgraduate student.
  2. Must be studying in the fields of either programming, computer science, or IT.
