Dulberg & Adams Endow Computer Science Scholarship

 Alumnus, Dr. Martin “Marty” Dulberg (MS ’96, PhD ’03) and his wife, Dr. Barbara “Jasmine” Adams, have made a generous donation to the department of computer science to establish a scholarship endowment in honor of Marty’s mother and stepfather, Renee and Stan Katz.
The Renee and Stan Katz Scholarship Endowment will provide scholarship funds to a freshman in computer science and is renewable for up to eight (8) semesters as long the student maintains qualifying grades and makes acceptable academic progress toward graduation. Should the recipient decide to change majors, the scholarship may be retained as long as the recipient remains in the College of Engineering. Preference shall be given to first generation college students.
Marty is the Director of the Computer Programming Certificate and Jasmine is the Director of Advising for the department of computer science.
This is the department’s 14th named endowment, and seventh specifically created to provide scholarship funding for computer science students.
More importantly, this endowment is the first in the “40@40 Campaign”, a special campaign designed to help the department commemorate its milestone 40th Year by increasing its endowments by 40% in 2007.  While a very ambitious goal, this embodies the bold and transforming support required to position our department among the very elite computer science departments in the nation. 
Marty and Jasmine feel strongly about supporting higher education, and in particular, they feel strongly about helping others achieve their academic potential.
This is actually the second scholarship endowment created by the couple. Their first endowment, the Michael and Olga Liss Memorial  Scholarship, was created in 2005 in memory of Jasmine’s grandparents, Michael and Olga Liss. It provides support for students majoring in mechanical engineering.
