UCSD student awarded scholarship during event

UCSD student Kenyon Ralph was granted the Pat and Bob Whalen Endowed Military Transfer Scholarship during the school’s annual Hearts & Scholars dinner, held last month at Price Center Ballroom West.

Ralph served in the Marine Corps Reserve for seven years and was deployed to Iraq two times. While in the military, Ralph attended several community colleges before transferring to UCSD.

Ralph will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering in 2010 and hopes to earn a graduate degree before getting a job in the engineering industry.

Other UCSD students received various scholarships as well.
