Sandra Dennhardt Scholarship
The Sandra Dennhardt Scholarship was established by Northwestern University Information Technology in 2000 to honor the memory of the late Sandra Dennhardt, former director of Northwestern Information Technology Management Systems.
The Dennhardt Scholarship is primarily funded by Northwestern Information Technology, with contributions from family and friends, and is administered through Northwestern's Center for Talent Development (CTD). The scholarship allows deserving grade school and high school students to attend CTD summer computer courses.
Young students have the opportunity to take these special courses on Northwestern's Evanston campus and prepare for advanced tracks of study in high school. The program offers encouragement for educational success, and provides increased social support through student and adult role models.
Each year, one or more Dennhardt Scholars are selected by a CTD committee from among scholarship applicants. To be considered, students must:
- be enrolled in an eligible CTD Summer Program Computer Science & Technology course in the Apogee, Spectrum or Equinox program (grades 4-12);
- complete an application essay; and
- demonstrate financial need by submitting a statement of need or completing a financial aid application for the program.
Information about the Center for Talent Development Summer Program and applying for the scholarship is available on the CTD website.
