While we’re on the subject of education, it’s worth noting Seagate Technology’s generous local scholarship program, offered for a third consecutive year, which provides scholarships of up to $2,000 for engineering students at Colorado State University and the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Incoming freshmen recipients will receive $2,000, and returning student recipients will receive $1,000, based on the following criteria: grade point average, financial need, community involvement and technical innovation/creativity.
Applications for the Seagate Scholarship Program are available on the company’s Web site. Completed applications will be accepted through April 12, 2007. Scholarship recipients will be notified in late April.
Call me crazy, but isn’t it about time for some actual Colorado-based tech companies to step up to the plate with scholarship funds to support our next generation of engineering talent?
