Lilly & Galloway Win Prestigious Cisco Scholarships

Congratulations to incoming freshmen Jessica Lilly and Kamar Galloway, who have been selected by Cisco Systems as NC State’s 2008-09 recipients of the Cisco Internet Generation Scholarship (CIGS).

Each scholarship is valued at $5,000/year and is renewable for four years of undergraduate study, as long as the student maintains enrollment in computer science and maintains a minimum 3.0 GPA.

Through the CIGS program, Cisco is attempting to increase the attraction and retention rates of underrepresented students in the field of computer science. The program also includes internships and Cisco Engineering Education opportunities.

Lilly of Reidsville and Galloway of Charlotte, join NC State’s 2007-08 winner Pamela Ocampo, and 2006-07 winners Mackenzie Corcoran and Robinson Udechukwu.
NC State is just one of seven universities nationally selected by Cisco to participate in this prestigious scholarship program. The other schools participating in the program include the University of Texas, University of Michigan, University of Washington, Seattle, Cornell, Georgia Tech, and the University of California, Berkeley.

Congratulations Jessica and Kamar!
