Syracuse University, commonly referred to as Syracuse, 'Cuse, or SU, is a private research university located in Syracuse, New York. The institution's roots can be traced to the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary (later becoming Genesee College), founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in Lima, New York, in 1831. Following several years of debate over relocating the college to Syracuse, the university was established in 1870, independent of the college. Since 1920, the university has identified itself as nonsectarian, although it maintains a relationship with The United Methodist Church. The campus is located in the University Hill neighborhood of Syracuse, east and southeast of downtown, on one of the larger hills. Its large campus features an eclectic mix of buildings, ranging from nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival structures to contemporary buildings. SU is organized into 13 schools and colleges, with nationally recognized programs in information studies and library science, architecture, communications, business administration, sport management, public administration, engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences. Syracuse University athletic teams, known as the Orange, participate in 20 intercollegiate sports. SU is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference for all NCAA Division I athletics, except for women's ice hockey, and the rowing team. SU is also a member of the Eastern College Athletic Conference.

1998 - Prior

The BASIC Fund began awarding scholarships in 1998. The idea was to educate less fortunate inner-city children, who may be locked in an unacceptable school situation. For example, schools a long way from home or where learning is impossible because of overcrowding, lack of discipline, gangs, drugs, or lack of caring and motivation. All these situations have in common a detriment to learning, and parents who must accept these conditions because they cannot afford to do anything about them. The area of education that seemed most logical to support was the elementary school, K through 8th grade. We felt if we could help the children in their earliest years, they were more apt to have a chance of success. For, without an education, many were doomed to a life of crime, drugs, unemployment and a situation not unlike what they had grown up with. The main qualification for eligibility for a BASIC Fund scholarship is that the families meet the financial guidelines set in the application; which are similar to the Federal Reduced Lunch Program guidelines. Also, the students must be entering the grades K-8. When granted a scholarship, it is necessary for the students to meet all the academic requirements of the private school to which they apply. We aim to offer a meaningful scholarship that in most cases approaches 50% of the tuition, with the parents making up most of the difference. Currently, the scholarship is up to $1,600 per year. We are a helping hand, not a hand out. BASIC Fund families must also have a stake in this educational endeavor. They have a stake if they are contributing to the cost of schooling. For the school year that began in 1998, The BASIC Fund awarded scholarships to 355 students who attended school in San Francisco County. The students attended forty-six different schools. In 1999 we expanded the program to include students attending schools in Marin and San Mateo Counties. In 2001 we expanded the program to include students in Alameda County. For the 2005-2006 school year we expanded our programs to include students attending school in Contra Costa County. And, in 2008 we expanded our program to include Santa Clara, Solano, Sonoma and Napa Counties. Currently, we are supporting 5,000 students in The Bay Area at about 300 different schools. Since our inception we have enjoyed generous matching gifts from Children's Scholarship Fund in New York and Arthur Rock. This means that with 100% of our administrative costs covered by contributions from our board of directors, every dollar we raise in contributions becomes multiple dollars in scholarships.

Intel Corporation is an American multinational semiconductor chip maker corporation headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Intel is the world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue. It is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers. Intel Corporation, founded on July 18, 1968, is a portmanteau of Integrated Electronics (the fact that "intel" is the term for intelligence information was also quite suitable). Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing. Founded by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore and widely associated with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove, Intel combines advanced chip design capability with a leading-edge manufacturing capability. Though Intel was originally known primarily to engineers and technologists, its "Intel Inside" advertising campaign of the 1990s made it and its Pentium processor household names.
