Computer Lab Student Scholarship
The Open-Student Computer Lab Scholarship was created, funded and is driven entirely by student employees of the lab every semester.
Students organize and run special events that fund the scholarship through:
- Book sales
- Selling advertising space on Computer Lab Screen Savers
In addition to raising funds for the scholarship, the students also donate their funds to local community organizations. Last year, the students collected $500 by donating an hour of their wages and made blankets for the Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. This spring, they collected 248 books and donated them to the local children’s center.
Based on available funds, the recipient is awarded a minimum of $1000 up to a full scholarship of $2800 for a semester of school.
To be awarded the scholarship the applicant must:
- Be an Open-student computer lab employee for at least one semester
- Have a GPA of 2.5 or higher
- Have high participation in lab activities and engaged in community service learning activities
The selection is made my a scholarship committee consisting of WSU faculty, staff and community members.
