The Foundation for Information Technology Education (EF) is very pleased to announce scholarship recipients of the Betty Stevens-Frecknall Scholarship for the 2007-2008 academic year. This distinguished scholarship is awarded by the Foundation for Information Technology Education to support individuals seeking a degree in an information technology-related program. The Betty Stevens-Frecknall Scholarship is awarded on the basis of scholastic ability, leadership potential, financial need and quality of the application.
The Betty Stevens-Frecknall Scholarship is the result of a generous grant from the estate of Betty Stevens-Frecknall. Betty served as President of the Washington D.C. Chapter, as Association Director (now Chapter Liaison), and as President of the Mid-Atlantic Region. She was a strong advocate for AITP and the opportunities available to its membership.
The selection committee is composed of EF regents, and representatives from the Stevens-Frecknall estate and the Washington D.C. Chapter. Applications were submitted on the EF Website (www.edfoundation.org) for this award. After extensive review, the committee has named the following recipients:
Rica Gaines of Charter College, Anchorage, AK Jamie Schroeder of ITT Technical Institute, Nashville, TN Jenna Nisbett of Texas State University, San Marcos, TX
We are extremely grateful to the estate for its confidence in the EF to appropriately manage the endowment, and administer the scholarship selection procedure.
It is our hope that these three recipients will continue to demonstrate leadership, quality in everything they do, and contribute to the information technology profession in the future.
Scholarship applications for the 2008-2009 academic year will be available on the (www.edfoundation.org) website after January 1. The submission deadline will be May 31, 2008. More detail about both scholarships is available on the Web site.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to either of these funds, please contact EF President.
