The Mark Stehlik SCS Alumni Undergraduate Impact Scholarship

All School of Computer Science undergraduates embody technical excellence. They fearlessly complete one of the toughest CS curriculums in academia, ultimately becoming the graduates most sought after by leading tech companies. But even among this group, some students exude an "it" factor that makes them stand out. They demonstrate the passion to tackle research problems no course requires. They start their own initiatives at CMU. They energize their peers, and serve as teaching assistants and mentors to help others succeed.

The SCS Alumni Advisory Board created the Mark Stehlik SCS Alumni Undergraduate Impact Scholarship to honor students that go that extra mile.

It recognizes and supports SCS undergraduates whose drive for excellence extends beyond the classroom — students who make a difference both in the field of computer science and the world around them. Awarded near the end of a student's undergraduate career, the Stehlik Scholarship encourages SCS students to increase their engagement in research and community service, and reach beyond their courses and grades.

It seemed only fitting to name the award after Mark Stehlik, teaching professor of computer science and assistant dean for outreach, who has been a tireless force in encouraging a generation of CMU students to excel at CS — and at life.

You can help us honor SCS undergrads and Mark's rich legacy by supporting this fund.
