CROOMS AoIT ALUMNI ASSOCIATION COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP

Scholarship is defined as the knowledge resulting from study and research in a particular field. There are scholars in various fields of academia, there are scholars in various fields of religion, and there are 'scholars' in various fields entertainment, but should there not also be scholars in civic involvement and community development? As we look into the foreseeable future, local involvement and community building efforts will not only be the cornerstone of our political and civic lives, but also our academic lives. Learning through doing in the local community provides valuable knowledge about how our hometowns function, how individuals interact with each other, and how to critically address the problems society faces.

Our group is proud to support both academic scholarship and 'community scholarship' by providing the Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Community Scholarship. With its focus on academics and local involvement, our scholarship program has some lofty goals. It is our expectation that current and future students will be able to attain these goals and also be able to critically address the existing problems our society faces and provide valuable insight into how to build a stronger, healthier, and happier community.
