Last December, Sally and I created the Desouza Family Endowment at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Here is the press release from UIC. The Desouza Family Endowment will support a yearly scholarship given to a student at the UIC Honors College. This scholarship will support academic excellence and show appreciation for students’ contributions to the UIC community. We believe that all students should receive encouragement for their dreams and aspirations, through support of their undergraduate studies. We hope to support the best and brightest at UIC – students who not only excel academically but who also go beyond the classroom and make a positive impact on the UIC community through community service and leadership in student organizations.
