The School of Computing and Engineering honored our scholarship donors and student scholars on Oct. 18 at the 2013 Donor and Student Scholarship Recognition Luncheon held at Pierson Auditorium in the Atterbury Student Success Center.
Many SCE computer science, engineering and information technology students rely on the scholarship assistance provided to them as they complete their degree. This year, a record number of 70 student scholars received SCE scholarship awards. Each award represents the generosity and foresight of the families, individuals and companies that have established a SCE scholarship fund.
One example of how scholarships can have substantial, lasting impact is in the KCP&L scholarships. Over the last 21 years, KCP&L has provided four full-ride scholarships per year, significantly enhancing the development of Kansas City’s engineering talent and showing their commitment to the future. SCE honored KCP&L’s commitment to engineering education and to Kansas City students by presenting them with the 2013 Distinguished Donor Award at this year’s luncheon.
SCE thanks all the donors that have assured our deserving students can afford to pursue their degrees. We know they can be extremely proud of their scholars and of their commitment to creating a better future for us all by ensuring we have the technical expertise our nation needs to thrive.
