Mission

The CIO Scholarship Fund raises and donates money to higher educational institutions, with preference being given to those located in the San Francisco Bay Area.   Our donations are made as endowments and grants to provide financial assistance for students who have chosen a course of study in the field of Information Technology.  The objective of the CIO Scholarship fund is to sponsor students who have chosen a course of study and career path that leads to an IT leadership position, and to support local schools.
