Press Release: Intertech Foundation Awards 2016 STEM Scholarship

Recipient Alexina Boudreaux-Allen plans to study computer science at the University of Southern California

St. Paul, Minn.—June 2nd, 2016—Alexina Boudreaux-Allen has been selected by the Intertech Foundation board of directors to receive its $2,500 STEM scholarship for use in 2016-17. Boudreaux-Allen plans to study computer science and hopes to combine art and technology during her career.

“My main academic goal while at USC is to get involved with the Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT). Receiving an internship there is one of my top priorities, which will allow me to explore emerging graphics technologies and applications, and possibly develop a career in the combined fields of graphics and virtual reality. . . I believe that computer science can only ever reach its full potential when combined with another field. For me, that field will be art,” explained Boudreaux-Allen in her winning scholarship application.

Intertech Foundation President Tom Salonek said Boudreaux-Allen’s application was outstanding because she demonstrates technology vision and practical thinking about how to achieve her goals.

“Alexina is excited to prepare for a career that is still emerging. She probably will be a pioneer in finding innovative ways to combine technology with other fields for the betterment of all. We are pleased to provide her with financial assistance through the Intertech Foundation STEM scholarship and we encourage more young women to follow Alexina’s example in pursuing a STEM-related career,” Salonek said.
