Digital Adventures – Algoma U. Scholarship

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – September 2, 2003 – Digital Adventures announced today, the creation of a $500 entrance scholarship at Algoma University College. The scholarship, which will be awarded in November of each year, will go to a first year Computer Science student with a minimum entrance average of 80% and who best answers the question “Why am I excited about a career in Computer Science?” in 100 words or less.

According to Nevin Buconjic, President of Digital Adventures, “I created the scholarship because I wanted to give something back to Algoma U. They have been nothing but supportive and encouraging with our Computer Camps program. Without the help of Dr. Celia Ross and many of the staff at Algoma U., the camps may not have become a reality. Secondly, I wanted to do something to reward a student for being excited about taking Computer Science at Algoma U. As a graduate of the program, I was very satisfied with the education I recieved, and I would like to see more of our young people staying in Sault Ste. Marie for their education.”

Officials at Algoma University were very excited to accept the scholarship on behalf of future students, and are expected to make a formal announcement shortly.
