“I'm ecstatic to be one of this years recipients of this prestigious scholarship among so many other exceptional peers. This is my first year of involvement in AITP, and my experience has been wonderful and filled me with the desire to do more. The Robert Half Technology Scholarship has offered me an amazing opportunity to continue my education without financial worry and to continue and increase my involvement in It Organizations like AITP, UPE, and my school campus Technology Ambassador Program. I'm look forward to next years conference and a long and close relationship with AITP and Robert Half Technologies. Thank you so much for this amazing reward.”
Arielle Kohler (Ferris State University)
“Thank you to Robert Half Technology and the AITP. I am truly honored to have won this prestigious scholarship. I will not only be able to devote more time to commit to my fellow students and community, but I will also be able to take a couple of courses that I otherwise would not be able to take. The financial burden of my senior year is now lessened, thanks to this generous scholarship. I am extremely proud to represent Ferris State University with this scholarship. Thank you to both Robert Half Technology and AITP for helping me achieve my goals, finish my degree, and spend more time being involved with what I love - Ferris State University's AITP student chapter! I plan to help recruit more members to AITP whenever I can, because of what an amazing impact AITP has had on my life, not just my college career. I cannot wait to be a professional member of AITP and hopefully assist with NCC and region conferences! Once again, thank you to Robert Half Technology and AITP!”
