Established in 2010, theLaSalle-Chen Scholarship is available to students with advanced standing in MIS or Operations Management. The scholarship’s goal is to encourage and support students with significant academic promise that have overcome personal challenges to obtain advanced standing in MIS. The scholarship’s focus is one of encouragement and allowing students to fulfill their promise, and therefore is open to all students who obtain advanced standing in MIS regardless of their current GPA.
The scholarship is an annual award of $1000, and is renewable as long as the student continues to make progress towards their degree and remains in good academic standing. There will be a total of 5 scholarships awarded per year.
The LaSalle-Chen Scholarship was established in honor of two MIS professors. Dr. Jim LaSalle is Professor Emeritus of the MIS Department at the University of Arizona, having served the MIS department and The University for more than 30 years as a master teacher. Dr. Hsinchun Chen is McClelland Professor of MIS at the University of Arizona. He has served the MIS department and The University for more than 20 years and has been a prolific researcher.
