The Jeffrey J. Eiben STEM Scholarship presented by River Point Technology recognizes students’ outstanding efforts in science, technology, and communication. The recipients demonstrate an ability to understand challenging STEM-related topics, can apply their skills to solve technological problems and can communicate results to others articulately. This scholarship is presented to up to three Baldwin High School seniors annually. Applicants for the Jeffrey J. Eiben STEM Scholarship must carry a minimum 3.0 grade point average and be in good standing with the Baldwin-Whitehall School District. Additional requirements include a copy of your high school transcript, a copy of your college acceptance letter, and a response to a real-world problem either by essay (max: 3 pages) or by video (max: 5 minutes) that address the real-world scenario through problem-solving, communication, and critical thinking.
This scholarship was established in 2021 through the generosity of Mr. Jeffrey J. Eiben, a graduate of Baldwin High School in 1988, and owner of River Point Technology, an IT consulting firm in Pittsburgh, Pa. Eiben’s time as a student provided a foundation for his personal and professional pursuits. “Academically, the teachers challenged us, and we had to work hard,” he said. “This has carried through my professional career. My advice to current students is to take advantage of the solid foundation that Baldwin has given you. Use that foundation to explore the world and give yourself options in life.” You can read more about Mr. Eiben and how his educational experience in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District prepared him for career success in the January 2021 article from Highlander Highlights.
