The School of Engineering selected five of its “best and brightest" to receive the prestigious Andrew S. Grove Scholarship for the2005-2006 academic year. The Grove Scholars Program was established in 2004 through generous funding support from distinguished alumnus Andrew S. Grove, ChE ’60, former CEO and Chairman of the Board of INTEL. The first cohort of Grove Scholars represents both new freshman and transfer students, those who have exceptional academic backgrounds as well have a strong potential and commitment to succeed in engineering.

Uzma Syed, a computer engineering major from A. Philip Randolph Campus High, and Tran Thanhhanh, a chemical engineering major coming to CCNY from Vietnam, are freshmen who are high tech savvy females who had a thirst for engineering knowledge at an early age. Keith Gallardo, who hails from Stuyvesant High School, is a mechanical engineering major who intends to become a leader in industry as well as a strong role model for youngsters who want to attend college. Ricardo Lantigua, an electrical engineering major, and Joel Gonzalez, who is majoring in computer engineering, are both proven academically talented transfer students, coming from CUNY’s own York and BMCC campuses. Ricardo and Joel’s commitment to succeed in engineering started this past summer through their participation in the intensive TRACC (Transfer Recruitment and Retention at City College) Summer Program that helped them get a head start in their transition and learning.

The overarching goal of the Grove Scholars Program is to serve as a key component of a comprehensive recruitment strategy to attract top prospective students to CCNY’s School of Engineering. Grove Scholars receive a one-year, $5,000 scholarship with opportunities to garner additional scholarship support from a number of School and College-wide sources. Over the duration of funding, up to 20 students per year will become a part of this distinguished group of scholars.
