About the Scholarship
On November 16, 2006, Sandra and Douglas Bergeron announced the establishment of a unique $1 million gift for a scholarship-mentorship program in Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business.
The Bergeron Women in Technology Leadership Fund is awarded annually to undergraduate female students who have expressed interest in or demonstrated high potential for leadership careers in technology.
This scholarship fund uniquely partners a tuition award with a one-on-one mentorship program designed to assist high-potential women in their educational and career advancement.
To be considered, eligible candidates should excel in their studies as evidenced by a high grade-point average. Students nominated for this scholarship must be female undergraduates who will be juniors in the fall semester, majoring in computer information systems or computer science, with at least four semesters remaining. Candidates who successfully achieve senior status after the fall/spring of the initial award period and remain in good standing will be eligible for a second year of funding.
