I am writing to thank you for your generous Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum Scholarship.  I was very thrilled and appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient of your scholarship.  By providing the Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning as well as continuing my focus on my career.  Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.  I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.

 

Kathryn White

Major: Information Technology

Class of 2017

Thank you for your generous scholarship.  I am honored to have received this award.  Due to this scholarship, I am able to take more courses and graduate early in December of 2017.  It is thrilling to graduate early because I have been itching to break into the IT field full-time.  This scholarship gives me the opportunity to meet with professionals in my field, this alone is worth its weight in gold.  I look forward to meeting the members of the CIO Forum and networking with as many IT professionals as I can.

Scott Turner

Major: Computer Science

Class of 2017

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your extremely generous scholarship.  With this boost, I will be able to spend my initial years in the workforce focusing on what I love, rather than on paying down debt.  I always speak wonderfully of the Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum to the younger students I meet who are interested in IT/CS, and it means even more to be able to tell them than not only does this scholarship help with finances, but that the experience of attending a meeting with dozens of CIOs is one that can inspire and push you to hone your goals.

Scholarship Recipients Spring 2016:

Sara Bittner

Major: Computer Science

Class of 2018

Thank you for this extraordinarily generous scholarship.  The Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum Scholarship means more to me than you could ever possibly know.  To be honest, I had been going through a difficult time during this past semester.  Emotionally, physically, and psychologically, my courses were exhausting and I was beginning to feel as though all my struggling was in vain.  I received the news that I was awarded this scholarship while I was studying for my finals.  It was exactly what I needed to continue to persevere through finals.  I hope to be able to make a positive change in the world and to be a worthy recipient of this honor.

Major: Computer Science

Class of 2017

Thank you for your support! As the costs of even a public school higher education continue to soar, the Mid-Atlantic CIO Forum Scholarship has made it possible for me to gain an education while lessening how much I have to mortgage my future to acquire said education.  Nothing has excited me quite as much as opening the letter stating I was awarded this scholarship.  I thank you for the financial support, for brightening my and my family’s day, and for having such a large influence this early in my life.
