Aristide Niyungeko, La Roche College: "I was greatly honored to receive the RHT/AITP scholarship for the 2011 edition of the National Collegiate Conference. I am very grateful towards both RHT and AITP for providing this opportunity. I am also humbled that the selection committee chose me to receive the award. I have benefited greatly from my involvement with the La Roche College chapter of AITP throughout the last three years. I have had the opportunity to participate as a member in various activities. I also have served as the chapter president in my junior year. Overall these experiences allowed to me to gain increased acquaintance with the realities of being an information technology professional, and to develop new skills along the way. NCC 2011 was also a great experience that gave me and my colleagues from La Roche College the opportunity to participate in the Web Application contest, access certification tests from Microsoft, and network with recruiters. The scholarship award will assist me to pay for my education expenses for my senior year and prepare to enroll in graduate school next year. I thank RHT and AITP again for this opportunity"
Michael Benz, Fox Valley Technical College: "I want to thank AITP and Robert Half Technology for sponsoring and funding this scholarship for AITP student members. Since becoming involved in AITP, doors have continually been opened to me that would have stayed closed otherwise. AITP is a wonderful organization, and has been an integral part of my success as a student and a leader, both on campus and in my personal life. As one of this year's recipients of the Robert Half Technology / AITP Scholarship, I wish to express my thanks to you and Robert Half Technology for your generosity. I am honored to receive this prestigious national award. I appreciate your confidence in me, and your willingness to contribute to my education. Receiving this scholarship will greatly reduce the financial burdens of pursuing degrees in Information Technology at Fox Valley Technical College. Again, thank you for investing in my future."
