Peking University Qualcomm Scholarship
June 7, 2017
Founded in 1985, Qualcomm Incorporated is a world leader in 3G, 4G and next-generation mobile technologies. For more than 25 years, Qualcomm ideas and inventions have driven the evolution of digital communications, linking people everywhere more closely to information, entertainment and each other. Not only focusing on its own innovation, Qualcomm also cares about innovation in the world.
In 2014, Qualcomm made a $100,000 grant to Peking University establishing “Peking University Qualcomm Scholarship” to award outstanding Peking University undergraduate students major in Computer Science and Enginnering. As the first endowment of the “Peking University Future Leader Scholarship Endowment” plan, Qualcomm Scholarship is very meaningful to the University and to our students.
DENG Yiqi (2019′) from School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Peking University, is the first recipient of the Scholarship in 2015. “I am very honored to receive this award since my freshman year not only as a recognition of my past works, but also as an encouragement for me to learn and develope more in the field of electronic engineering … In 2016, I won the third prize in one of the most competitive programming competitions at Peking University with my two roommates. Even though it is not a big prize, I was still so excited because it means I truly made a progress for myself, and also I feel that I have not let down people who have faith in me, like Qualcomm … As a recipient of Qualcomm Scholarship, I will always remember this precious support I received and will pass down this appreciation in my future journey at Peking University and also after my graduation. I hope I could be someone who can also make contributions to the community and maybe the world in the future.”
