Rambus Inc. awards scholarships

Rambus 2008 "Innovator of the Future" Scholarship Awards went to Ryan Kelly of Mountain View High School and Sam Vesuna of Los Altos High School.

The Rambus "Innovator of the Future" scholarship awards program, established in 2004, seeks to broaden the educational opportunities of students who, by virtue of their academic and extracurricular achievement, demonstrate a passion for science and technology that extends beyond the classroom.

Kelly and Vesuna have each been awarded $10,000 for college or university tuition and books at a U.S. or foreign college or university. The scholarship money will be distributed in equal increments over four years at the beginning of each academic year.

In addition to the scholarship awards, a one-time award of $1,000 will go to each of the other four finalists in this year's scholarship program: Katherine Johnson, Tania Morimoto, Christine Ryan and Travis Schuh, all from Mountain View High School.
HT to Kelly, Vesuna, Katherine, Tania, Christine and Travis, Rambus Inc. . .

Perhaps next year Rambus will award a scholarship to a student in law school who finishes top in his or her intellectual property class - because without the lawyers writing those patents and then running to court . . .
