Cisco Allocates Prestigious NCIGS Scholarships to NC State

Cisco Systems has selected NC State as one of just five universities nationally to participate in their National Cisco Internet Generation Scholarship (NCIGS) program.

Through the NCIGS program, Cisco plans to award two annual scholarships to underrepresented NC State CSC undergraduates (minorities and/or females). Each scholarship is valued at $5,000/year and is renewable as long as the student maintains enrollment in computer science and maintains a minimum 3.0 GPA.

The program also includes internship and Cisco Engineering Education opportunities.

Since the scholarships are renewable and new scholarships will be awarded to two new freshmen each year, as many as eight NC State CSC students could receive NCIGS awards concurrently as the program matures. Cisco plans to award the first two scholarships to two incoming freshmen starting in the fall 2006.
