Robert H.Douglas

Robert H. Douglas was an electrical engineer, computer scientist, and later in his life - professor at DeVry University and Arizona State University. He counted among his many achievements a significant number of patents. He also spearheaded the creation of many international electronic standards that today underpin modern digital network communication.

A huge believer in the power of education, he provided financial assistance to a number of talented Eastern European students in the US, some of whom have moved on to become top professionals in their fields and prominent members of their communities. His friends and family took a decision to honor his memory through the continuation of these efforts. An endowment was thus created to fund the R.H. Douglas scholarship program.

The R.H.Douglas scholarship seeks to support candidates with strong long-term potential for professional achievement in the business, legal, or political fields, as well as a solid set of core values. To become eligible, applicants must attend one of the top 20 global universities, and be citizens of Ukraine, Bulgaria, Poland, or Russia.
