Support Diversity and Humanitarianism in the Computer Science FieldThe Alice Y. Wu Memorial Award is open to undergraduate students who are juniors or seniors with demonstrated academic success, and who are Computer Science majors. More specifically, the award aims to support those students in Computer Science who are also involved in campus, community leadership or volunteer experience with humanitarian causes. The Department of Computer Science and Engineering will nominate and select the deserving recipient(s).

About the Memorial AwardAlice Y. Wu was an amazing individual whose spirit continues to impact our lives every day. She was a talented software engineer with a big heart and a commitment to helping the underserved. With this award, we hope to honor Alice's legacy and motivate other students to grow academically but also socially.
About AliceAlice was the first child of Chinese parents who emigrated from Guangzhou to Cupertino, California when she was five years old. While obtaining her bachelor’s degree in computer science at UC San Diego, Alice was very involved on campus, balancing studies and extracurriculars. She joined the Kappa Zeta Phi sorority, serving as Vice President of Community Service, sang with two a cappella choirs, volunteered at the Friends of Cats animal shelter, worked as a computer science tutor, and worked as an engineering intern at Broadcom Corporation.
On behalf of her family and friends, thank you for joining our effort._________________________
