Mark Kusiak Memorial Scholarship

Mark Kusiak Memorial Scholarship

To honor the memory of Mark Kusiak, his contributions to General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, his affection for Virginia Tech, and recognizing the continuing need for funds to support students at Virginia Tech, the Mark Kusiak Memorial Scholarship has been established.

Recipients must be U.S. citizens, hold a minimum GPA of 3.5, and be undergraduates enrolled in the College of Engineering's Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or the Department of Computer Science.

Recipients may be offered a paid internship at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems between his/her sophomore and junior year or his/her junior and senior year.

Preference shall be given to students based on a) academic merit, b) personal character, c) interest in a career in the civilian defense industry, and d) demonstrated leadership skills. Preference shall be given to students who would be first-generation college graduates, i.e. whose parents have not completed a Bachelor's or equivalent degree. Preference shall also be given to previous recipients who continue to qualify in subsequent years. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Recipients will be referred to as Mark Kusiak Scholars.
