Covenant College Students Named Chattanooga Technology Scholars
Three Covenant College students were recently named Chattanooga Technology (ChaTech) Scholars. The ChaTech scholarship program aims to invest in regional students who have technological talents—cultivating the area’s technology talent pipeline. Elena Hatch ’20, Nathaniel Henriques ’18, and Nathaniel Zietlow ’20 were all named ChaTech Scholars at the ChaTech Education Symposium on June 21, 2017.
The ChaTech scholarship is funded by a number of local corporate partners. To apply for the scholarship, students must meet certain GPA requirements and submit a brief autobiography along with an essay describing how technology has affected their lives or their plans for technology in the future.
“The ChaTech scholarship program is an example of how we’re leveraging our close proximity to Chattanooga, TN, for our students’ benefit,” said Dr. John Hunt, professor of computer science. “Chattanooga is an area with a growing high-tech industry. This event is a good demonstration of how the liberal arts work well in conjunction with the study of computer science. Our students were required to write an essay about technology in their scholarship application, putting their knowledge of computer science to work alongside their ability to write well.”
Computer science is a fast-growing major at Covenant College. Students who major in computer science have the opportunity to specialize in a cyber security or software development concentration. Small class sizes and direct access to computer science faculty members provide students with an ideal environment to grow in their discipline. At Covenant, students receive rigorous computer science training from professors who are committed to a Christian understanding of the world. The liberal arts curriculum at Covenant ensures that students graduate with a well-rounded education and ready to begin a career in computer science.
