Scholarship Matching Program

There are few gifts you can make that are more transformative to students’ lives than scholarships. If you make a pledge between now and December 31, 2018, you can take advantage of a special opportunity to set up a scholarship in your name or the name of a loved one and have that gift matched by the Kodosky Foundation, doubling the impact of your philanthropy. These gifts will be used to recruit the best and brightest undergraduate students to the Department of Computer Science, ensuring that these talented students have every reason to call the University of Texas at Austin home.  If you would like to learn more about how you can be involved in this important initiative, click here or contact Brent Winkelman at or 512-471-9793 for more information.

Who Wants a Brick?

T.U. Taylor Hall BrickAs many of you know, Taylor Hall has been demolished to make way for the Bill & Melinda Gates Computer Science Complex. Original bricks from UTCS's old home, Taylor Hall, have been salvaged, mortar and all! Memories of Tay Bay, studying all night, labs, relationships started and ended and the achievement of a computer science degree from a top ten ranked department…many people over the years have fond memories of life in Taylor Hall. We couldn't think of a better use for them than to give them to alumni and past residents of Taylor Hall as mementos of life in the department. Each brick will have an engraved plaque on it along with information about the Gates Computer Science Complex – a symbol of UTCS's bright future!
