In 2009, we announced that rather than continuing to buy pizza at user groups, we’d like to do something more substantial with our contributions to the community. I’m happy to report that after almost 4 years, our scholarship is alive and doing well! Our current recipient enters her senior year next month and is on track to graduate in December, 2013.
Here’s where we stand in terms of funding this endeavor: Endowment fund: $25,000 pledged / $18,000 contributed / $7,000 remainder.
This wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors, especially Red-Gate and JetBrains, so a big thanks goes out to them and to all of you in the community who have helped us do this good thing!
