Support CSE


The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at The Ohio State University is a leading education and research entity of information technology in the United States and the world. The department is dedicated to providing a rigorous and advanced learning environment for students with diverse career goals of science, engineering and applications. 

CSE faculty, students and research fellows aim to make innovations and contributions to advance computing technologies and applications for the benefit of our students, our university, the State of Ohio, and the nation. The State of Ohio supports our program, but those contributions fund just a fraction of the actual cost of educating our students. We rely on external grants and research funds to support these efforts, but more importantly, we depend heavily on the contributions of alumni and friends who support our efforts. A donation to CSE can provide support for a student’s educational expenses, maintain our education and research facilities, or enhance our overall program offerings.

Supporting CSE Students

With continued generous donations by our alumni and friends, the CSE department is able provide scholarships to select CSE students each year. These scholarships make a tremendous impact on the academic careers and lives of our students.

More than half of Ohio State students take out loans to pay for school, with an average debt per borrower of $26,932. Your decision to donate to a CSE scholarship has never been more important. Help us expand our scholarship funds to enable more CSE students to stay in school and complete their degrees.

Research grants and state contributions only provide a small portion of the funding needed for CSE to remain a leader in teaching and research.
