CCNY Tech awarded Jared Wrate of New Hartford NY with a $1,000 technology scholarship. Jared is a Computer and Electrical Engineering Technology major at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Utica NY.
The technology scholarship was based upon his essay submission and shares on social media. The requirements for entry were enrollment in a college, with a major in a technology-related field. CCNY Tech hopes to encourage students to pursue careers in technology, as well as ease the financial burden of higher education.
“Thank you CCNY Tech for the opportunity. I think it’s great that a local student won.” said Wrate.
Jared plans to use the scholarship for books and other college expenses. He is currently interning for an IT Company in New Hartford, NY this summer and will return to as a senior to SUNY Polytechnic Institute for the 2017-18 school year. His future plans include starting a career in the Computer Engineering Field after college.
