Sakson Diversity Undergraduate Scholarship

Donna Sakson and Jonathan Mark, Donna's husband, established the Sakson Diversity Undergraduate Scholarship fund to bring more under-represented minority students into the department of Human Centered Design & Engineering and thus into the profession.

By offering educational opportunities, we expand diversity both in the educational setting and in our professional community, - Donna Sakson

Donna is a well-known graduate of our department (when it was called Technical Communication) and former President of Sakson & Taylor, Inc., one of the largest technical documentation companies in the world with offices in Seattle and Vancouver, Washington; Fort Collins, Colorado; and Boise, Idaho.

The amount of the scholarship varies each year based on revenue from endowed funds. For more information on the application process, please see below. Also read about Sakson Diversity Scholarship recipient bios.
