Birmingham-Southern College student earns Datatel Foundation scholarship

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern 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 philanthropic efforts on scholarship awards. More than $3 million has been awarded in scholarships since the foundation began.
