Aureus Tech Systems Creates Aureus Equity Scholarship for UCM trailblazers

Posted By

Aureus Tech Systems has created the Aureus Equity in Education Annual Scholarship for the Computer Information Systems & Analytics (CIS) program at The University of Central Missouri (UCM). The $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to current undergraduate students who are in good academic standing with a previous cumulative high school GPA of 2.5 or higher, have been fully admitted to the business program, have financial need, and complete a one-page essay on what inspired them to attend college.

“As a UCM alumni who graduated from the CIS program, I’m honored to play a part in contributing to UCM’s CIS program and assisting deserving students cultivate their unique gifts to pursue a career in technology. UCM offered me an impactful education, and this is one way of giving back to UCM and the world at large,” said Sujata Bhattarai, CEO, Aureus.

To be a professional software engineer or otherwise, one needs training and usually some type of formal education. Those who plan to embark on a career in technology should seriously consider a degree in computer information systems.

“At Aureus, we obviously believe that the future is artificial intelligence and cloud computing. There are so many brilliant minds in this world who, with the right tools and resources, can accomplish miraculous things,” stated Abhishek Pakhira, COO, Aureus.

The recipient(s) of this Scholarship will be recommended by a Scholars Selection Committee from the CIS & Analytics program, with Abhishek Pakhira and Sujata Bhattarai.

“We very much appreciate the generosity of alumni Sujata Bhattarai and Abhishek Pakhira and Aureus Tech Systems through establishment of this scholarship. It has been a pleasure to observe the successes of Sujata and Abhishek and their passion in creating and running a leading global technology company, and we are proud that they are willing to support the next generation of CIS & Analytics students to help them achieve their goals and dreams,” said Dr. Robert Best, President, UCM.
