Advancing computing education globally

Oracle Academy Collaborates with Three Organizations to Award Scholarships

Rebecca Dinan Schneider
Global Marketing Communications Manager

Oracle Academy's mission is to advance computing education, and an important part of this is making computer science accessible to all students. We were pleased this year to partner with several U.S. national organizations to recognize and support outstanding students in computer science.

To outstanding undergraduate and graduate students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher pursuing degrees in computer science or engineering at a four-year college or university, Oracle Academy provided support to each organization for two undergraduate scholarships of US$2,500 each and one graduate fellowship of US$10,000 each. The individual organizations selected scholarship winners from many qualified applicants. 

We congratulate the outstanding 2018-2019 recipients of these scholarships!

American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
