The Gary Greenberg Technology for Children Scholarship Fund has been established by Northwestern University Information Technology to honor the memory of the late Gary Greenberg, former Executive Director for Teaching and Research Initiatives for Information Technology.
The Gary Greenberg Technology for Children Scholarship Fund is a $500 scholarship administered through Northwestern's Center for Talent Development (CTD). The scholarship allows for partial tuition for a student enrolled in an eligible technology class in the CTD Summer Program.
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 and success in higher education. The program also provides increased social support for high achievement through student role models, teachers, other adults and intellectual peers.
Each year, one or more students will be 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 Leapfrog, Spark, Solstice or Apogee program (grades 1-6);
- 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.
