The Bergeron Scholarship program rewards significant academic achievement and is the largest dollar award available to students in Georgia State University's Robinson College of Business. The program is funded with an endowment from Sandra and Douglas G. Bergeron and expanded this year to the University of California, Berkeley.

"We're very proud of the success of the Robinson College program and of the young women leaders of tomorrow who have participated," said Sandra Bergeron, a graduate of Robinson's computer information systems program. "As in the past, this year's winners will benefit from professional mentoring and financial assistance that will help them achieve their goals."

Robinson's Department of Computer Information Systems is ranked in the top 10 for both undergraduate and graduate offerings in U.S. News & World Report's annual listings of the nation's best colleges and best graduate schools.

"With the support of Sandra and Doug Bergeron, the Bergeron Scholars program at the Robinson College is preparing high-potential young women for leadership positions in the technology industry," said Dean H. Fenwick Huss.

"Mentoring is such a critical element in the development of strong leaders. Atlanta-based Women in Technology (WIT) supports the Bergeron Scholars by pairing them with female technology executives who serve on WIT's board of directors," WIT's executive director Stephanie Hill commented. "Our board members remain committed to doing their part to ensure the successful launch of these ladies into the business arena, which is a win for Georgia's technology community."
