Citrix Online Establishes Scholarship in Computer Engineering

The company partners with the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara to offer a $2,500 award

Citrix Online will partner with the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara to encourage more young people to pursue a college degree.

By establishing the Citrix Online Innovator Scholarship Fund, Citrix aims to support Santa Barbara County students interested in computer engineering.

The $2,500 award is a scholarship for an undergraduate student with financial need who will pursue a degree at a four-year university.

“Scholarships help talented students excel in their education and in their career, creating technology that benefits all of us,” said Liz Werhane, internal communications manager for Citrix Online. “Citrix Online is committed to supporting education. After all, the company’s founders had ties to UC Santa Barbara, and it has continued to innovate with employees drawn from a highly talented pool of graduates in computer engineering.”

Colette Hadley, executive director of the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, said: “We are pleased to join forces with Citrix Online. We commend our corporate partners who are helping support the next generation of business leaders. Employers benefit by utilizing the Scholarship Foundation to manage their scholarship funds, while students and families benefit from the generous philanthropy of local businesses.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
