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.
