The Alene McDermott Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in February 2011 in loving memory of Alene McDermott, a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend who lost her battle with cancer September 21, 2010. Support from her family and friends, as well as Alene’s passion for singing and playing guitar, allowed her to extend her life against immeasurable odds. It is the hope of all who loved Alene that her optimistic spirit and musical inspiration will be perpetuated through awarding the Alene McDermott Memorial Scholarship to college bound students who wish to embark on a career in music or art.

by Margaret McDermott, widow of Texas Instruments cofounder Eugene McDermott. RICHARDSON, Texas (March 3, 2005) — The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) has selected 17 academically gifted and community-service-driven students who will make up the latest class of Eugene McDermott Scholars. Now in its fifth year, the highly selective scholars program enrolls top high school students from the United States and other parts of the world and provides them with “full-ride” academic scholarships as well as a host of cultural, educational and civic opportunities. Dr. Charles Leonard, director of the McDermott Scholars Program, observed that in the program’s five years of existence, its reputation has grown well beyond Texas. As McDermott Scholars, the students will have all of their educational expenses — including travel, room and board and books — covered for the next four years and will participate in a wide variety of rewarding cultural and educational experiences. During their tenure at UTD, they will go on an orientation trip to Santa Fe, N. M., visit the nation’s capital and have an opportunity to study abroad as well as a chance to apply for internships at prominent corporations, government offices and research institutions. Most of the inaugural class of McDermott Scholars — admitted in the fall semester of 2001 — will graduate in May, and many will continue their studies at the graduate level at UTD or elsewhere. One student has been accepted to Harvard Medical School, another is considering law school at New York University or Tulane University in Louisiana, and still another will continue his studies in a prestigious M.D./Ph. D. program at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas.Fisher and Ann Worthy, right, posed with McDermott Scholars Siddharth Nivas and Zoe Wilson.

Getting the greatest odds of success comes from initially researching the prerequisites and knowing if you fulfill them. At the outset figure out the driving force for the Arizona State University and what they hope to achieve with the Barbara McDermott Scholarship. If you are qualified, figure out if you have a reasonable chance of actually getting the scholarship. After figuring out that there is a good chance of actually being a recipient of the Barbara McDermott Scholarship, then you should use your time. The McDermott Scholars program was made possible by a $32-million gift — the largest in UTD’s history — from Mrs. Margaret McDermott, wife of the late Eugene McDermott, one of the co-founders of Texas Instruments. McDermott and two of his TI co-founders, Cecil Green and Erik Jonsson, both of whom also are deceased, founded the research institution that in 1969 became UTD.Now in its eighth year, the McDermott Scholars Program attracts academically talented students who are also leaders in their high schools and communities. With an emphasis on four years of leadership and community service, the program is born of the belief that education should blend academics, culture, internship and travel.
