Former scholarship recipient gives millions for UWM engineering scholarships


If I hadn’t received the scholarship, I would’ve had to work probably
for minimum wage and below. And probably I wouldn’t do as well as I did. Submitted my grades and application, and within two weeks, I got a full ride. All I had to do was study. It made the difference. I started my own computer company to deal with personal computers. After I sold the company, I’ve decided to make a more
serious impact by giving back. When I told them that I wanna give a million dollars for scholarships, and they almost, like, fell from the chair. We’re able to attract much
higher caliber students. And they told me that
they wouldn’t be here if not for the scholarship, number one, or they couldn’t go to college if they didn’t have the scholarship. It feels wonderful. But I was so committed before that. I would do it even if nobody
told me one word of thanks, because I got it and I know what it means. If you’ve been on the other side, you know what it means. Nobody has to tell you thank you for you to know how much it affects them.
