Corporate Support Helps Change Lives
Both the Mason and corporate communities show support for the EIP and its students in many ways. Over the past year, two major fundraising events, the 2011 University Life Diversity Scholarship Golf Classic and the 2011 George Mason University Northrop Grumman Diversity Scholarship
Classic, have reaped huge benefits for our students. Because of this support, more than 25 EIP students attending Mason were awarded some form of scholarship. The awards were given to students who have excelled academically and have made contributions to the EIP or the S.T.E.P programs. EIP would like to recognize Sandy Spring Bank and Northrop Grumman for serving as the lead sponsors for the golf classics. We would also like to recognize QinetiQ, CACI, Lockheed Martin, Enterprise Rental, State Farm Insurance, Northrop Grumman Credit Union, Dell Computers, Xerox, Golden Gate, HITT Contracting, Marriott, Cardinal Bank, Brion‟s Grill, Akin, Gump, Hauer & Feld, L.L.P., Robert Baumgartner, Carlson, Hale and Baumgartner, UNISource, Price Modern, Ms. Terry Wang, Mr. Tony Pierce, and Mr. William Washington for their contributions. The University Life Diversity Scholarship Golf Classic was capped off with a warm speech by former NFL player and NFL Hall of Fame nominee Mr. Brian Mitchell. Thank you again to Mr. and Mrs. Green, EIP and University Life staff, the UL Advisory Board, the Development Office, and the many individuals who helped make each event successful.
