College student Kristian Collins of Montgomery recently was awarded
an undergraduate scholarship
by the Datatel Scholars Foundation.
The scholarships are awarded annually to eligible undergraduate
or graduate students who attend a college or university that
is a Datatel client. Criteria for receiving the scholarship include
achievement, academic merit, and letters of recommendation.
Collins was awarded $2,400, which can be used toward any educational
expenses. She plans to use the scholarship to fund a BSC service-learning
trip to Mozambique,
Africa, during Interim 2005.
A junior political science major, she is the daughter of James
and Connie Collins.
The Datatel Scholars Foundation of Fairfax, Va., was established
in 1990 to perpetuate its long-standing commitment to higher education
and to provide
a means for Datatel Inc. to give back to its client base by focusing its
efforts on scholarship awards. More than $3 million has been awarded in
scholarships since the foundation began.
