G2 Software Systems Scholarship

This year the G2 Software Systems Scholarship is pleased to award two scholarships: one for $5,000 and one for $3,000. The scholarship was established by Georgia Griffiths, President and Founder of G2 Software Systems, Inc. Georgia earned a math degree in 1973 and was the first in her immediate family to graduate from college. She received the University's Distinguished Alumna award in 2008. Her intent is to support students who will help invent the future and help keep the United States globally competitive by applying their talents and education in technology and science-based industries. The scholarship may be renewable from year to year. Women who are U.S. citizens are encouraged to apply.
