Intertech Foundation Awards 2016 STEM Scholarship
Alexina Boudreaux-Allen has been selected by the Intertech Foundation board of directors to receive its $2,500 STEM scholarship for use in 2016-17. Boudreaux-Allen plans to study computer science and hopes to combine art and technology during her career.
“My main academic goal while at USC is to get involved with the Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT). Receiving an internship there is one of my top priorities, which will allow me to explore emerging graphics technologies and applications, and possibly develop a career in the combined fields of graphics and virtual reality. . . I believe that computer science can only ever reach its full potential when combined with another field. For me, that field will be art,” explained Boudreaux-Allen in her winning scholarship application.
As I shared in the press release, Boudreaux-Allen’s application was outstanding because she demonstrates technology vision and practical thinking about how to achieve her goals.
