Tech Student Awarded $20,000 Scholarship
Santiago Handboy, an Industrial Engineering student at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, has been awarded a two-year, $20,000 year scholarship from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
Handboy is a junior at Tech, and is a graduate of Rapid City Central High School. The scholarship is one of only 10 given by the Packard Foundation in the Tribal Scholars Program.
The Tribal Scholars Program supports graduates of tribal colleges who are admitted to four-year colleges and universities for study in science, engineering, computer science, or mathematics. Handboy earned an associate's degree at Oglala Lakota College.
The David and Lucile Packard Foundation was created in 1964 by David Packard (1912-1996), co-founder of the Hewlett-Packard Company, and Lucile Salter Packard (1914-1987). They shared a deep and abiding interest in philanthropy. The Foundation awarded approximately $454 million in grants in 2001.
