Intel Clubhouse Members Awarded 26 Scholarships

Recently, 26 young people who are members of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network saw their HOPES for a higher education get closer to being fulfilled. They are recipients of an Intel Computer Clubhouse to College scholarship for the 2009-2010 academic years. Scholarships range from $2500 to $10,000. Selection of scholarship recipients was based on scholastic and financial need. Like his book’s title ‘The Audacity of Hope’, HOPE for a better future has been the overriding theme with the election of President Barrack Obama. There are those among us who hope for world peace; hope for a new world order; hope for a safer and cleaner environment; hope for a better education. And as President Obama said, “We can do better…and once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.”

I’m proud to say that this is yet another example of Intel’s commitment to education and helping young people from around the world realize their dream of a higher education, and perhaps becoming leading innovators of the next generation.

It is said, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” …… it is great knowing we’re giving 26 Clubhouse members in underserved communities a head start.
