It warms my heart to share with you the first scholarship recipient to receive Alice's memorial scholarship this year. Joshua Quan is a senior who is majoring in Computer Science and volunteers as a tutor for CS foreach, which teaches computer science to underrepresented communities.
Thanks so much for contributing to the scholarship; Alice's family and I are very grateful for your support. Read Joshua's thank-you note to all of you (his photo is below due to platform limitations).
Thank You From UC San Diego CS Major Joshua
I am honored to have been selected for the Alice Y. Wu Memorial scholarship. Your kind donation has lessened the financial burden of attending so that I can focus on my studies and contributing to my college community. I am a senior majoring in Computer Science with a GPA of 3.4. After I graduate, I plan to pursue a career in software engineering. In my college career, I have been a volunteer tutor for CS foreach, an organization that teaches computer science to underrepresented communities.
Through this organization, I have tutored for Knox Middle School’s Botball robotics competition, where I taught students how to write programs for robots. I currently tutor for the CSE department for introductory computer science to help new students adjust to programming. As a resident advisor at the Village, I help bring Village residents together as a community. I am also the president of the Video Game Development Club, where I help provide students with workshops and a community to creatively express themselves through making games. I hope to commit myself fully to these activities and my education so that I can best serve my community and prepare for my career in computer science.
Thank you for your generosity and dedication towards students pursuing higher education. Through this donation, I am better able to focus on my college career so that I can pursue my education to its fullest. As I finish college and push towards my career, I hope to contribute to other students that are struggling financially in the same way that this scholarship has helped me.
Consider Donating Every Year
Please consider making an annual donation, and applying for matching gifts if you work for a company which offers them, to continue Alice's legacy. Also, please share with anyone who wants to support underrepresented minorities in computer science/engineering: Alice's Scholarship at UC San Diego.
