High School Seniors Receive IEEE Scholarships

Sense Scholarship

Three Piscataway High School seniors received IEEE Scholarships during its Senior Scholarship Awards Ceremony held on 15 June in Piscataway, NJ, US, where the IEEE Operations Center is located.

Richard Allen, senior manager development operations and annual giving represented IEEE and the IEEE Foundation by presenting three scholarships to graduating seniors planning to pursue majors in IEEE fields of interest. Graduates in engineering or the related sciences are at the forefront in helping to bring the benefits of technology to people everywhere.   

IEEE presented two US$1,000 Daniel J. Senese Memorial Scholarships to ​​​​​​​Nikhil Raja (pictured), who plans to study engineering computer science at University of Maryland, College Park and to Himani Mehta, who plans to study computer science at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ.  

Since 2007, the IEEE Daniel J. Senese Memorial Scholarship has been awarded annually to deserving Piscataway High School graduating seniors enrolled in an accredited college or university and majoring in a field of interest of IEEE. Thanks to continued employee support and contributions to the Fund, the scholarship has been awarded to two such students each year since 2016 as a tribute to Dan, former IEEE executive director.  

IEEE presented an additional scholarship of US$1,000 to Piscataway High School senior Snigdha Podugu who plans to study computer science at University of Southern California.
