Three BYU students receive national Microsoft Scholarships

Three Brigham Young University students were chosen from thousands of applicants to receive the Microsoft College Scholarship.

The recipients, selected from thousands of applicants, are Heidi Wadsworth, a junior information technology major; Ilya Vinogradov, a computer science major; and Trevor Lacey, a computer engineering major. In addition, Lacey will be a Microsoft intern this summer.

The scholarship will cover the students’ tuition for the fall 2009 and winter 2010 semesters and recognizes their passion for software, academic excellence and ability to make a difference in the software industry.

“I’m pleased to announce that we have three Microsoft scholarship recipients this year from BYU,” said Rian Sacquitne from Microsoft. “This is impressive considering we had applicants from all across North America. BYU should be proud of the three recipients.”

Microsoft College Scholarships are designed to encourage students to pursue studies in computer science and related technical disciplines.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
