KeyBank is awarding a $1,000 scholarship to Kevin Broberg, a first-year computer science student from Rochester Institute of Technology. The scholarship is made available for full-time freshmen pursuing a four-year or five-year bachelor’s degree who graduated from a high school or a New York GED program in the Rochester area.
Broberg was selected as the recipient of this scholarship based on his academic achievements in RIT’s B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, as well as his community service and activities. Broberg is a Henrietta resident and a 2008 graduate of Wilson Magnet High School.
KeyBank’s New York State Scholarship brings RIT $1,000 closer to meeting its Support Our Students (SOS) challenge. The SOS challenge is a response to uncertain economic times and students facing serious financial challenges that threaten their ability to complete their degree. A generous donor will match gifts to any RIT scholarship fund dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million. The matching gift will be directed to unrestricted scholarship funds to benefit as many students as possible. As of March 2, 863 gifts have been contributed, reaching 38 percent of the challenge’s goal.
