The Mark Stehlik SCS Alumni Undergraduate Impact Scholarship recognizes and supports SCS undergraduates whose reach for excellence extends beyond the classroom — who are working to make a difference both in the field of computer science and the world around them. The award, created by the SCS Alumni Advisory Board, encourages SCS undergraduates to increase their engagement in research and community service, and to reach beyond their courses and grades. It shows the best and brightest SCS students that the community supports their tireless efforts to excel in all they do. And it’s appropriately named for former Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Education Mark Stehlik, who was a tireless force for encouraging a generation of students to shine in computer science, extracurricular activities and life.
To date, the fund has raised gifts and commitments totaling roughly $70,000.
Gillian Rosen (CS 2016) received the inaugural Mark Stehlik SCS Alumni Impact Scholarship in the spring of 2016. Rosen embodies the spirit of the scholarship, which honors students who excel both in and out of the classroom. During her time at Carnegie Mellon, Rosen has performed undergraduate research with Robotics Professor Howie Choset, and has participated in countless activities on campus, including driving for buggy.
