The CIO Scholarship Fund
The CIO Scholarship Fund is a 501(c3) non-profit that was established in 2002 by the Office of the CIO community as a major component of the community's philanthropic program. Our mission is to help build and enhance information technology leadership. Today, we accomplish this primarily through community building and scholarships:
1) We enhance interactions between students, schools, and IT practitioners.
2) We provide scholarships through local universities to students in economic need.
We recognize that individuals who grow through adversity, and those who help them are both building valuable leadership skills. Since its inception, the fund has raised over $1M and has generated countless volunteer hours from IT leaders to local schools.
