Join us for the 9th Annual Foley Scholars Awards Dinner. We will honor the winners and finalists of the 2016-17 Foley Scholars Awards, the GVU Center's highest award for student excellence.
The Foley Scholars Endowment Fund supports two scholarships annually for graduate students engaged in research that shows personal vision, brilliance and potential impact on human centered computing. Through the generous support of alumni, faculty and friends of GVU, the endowment - named in honor of GVU founder Dr. Jim Foley - has awarded 18 $5,000 graduate fellowships since 2007. This year we celebrate the Foley Scholars 9th anniversary.

When & Where
GVU is an interdisciplinary research center that brings together people and expertise from all six Georgia Tech colleges in order to solve complex problems.
Our goal is to make the world a better place through fundamental and applied interdisciplinary computing research. We want to help people and communities to be connected to one another, to communicate, to learn, to heal, to be entertained, to create, to express their ideas and visions, and to be given the tools and opportunity to expand their potential and improve their lives.
We’ve created a unique environment where some of the most progressive work in academic research is being done. Our program has gained international prominence and has become a hot spot for faculty and students committed to developing people-focused, creative, socially relevant technologies.
