About the Donor

Doug and Loretta Allred are both graduates of Washington State University, Loretta in 1972 and Doug in 1973.  With four daughters, they have a special interest in encouraging women to pursue university degrees. Since the family has benefited greatly from the WSU degrees that launched Doug and Loretta’s success in both business and family, and with the pervasive need for computer science graduates in all business endeavors, the Allreds have generously given back by endowing three separate scholarships in computer science.

Doug serves on the College of Engineering and Architecture Advisory Board, a service that endorses the family’s  commitment to the mission and goals of the college and the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

This endowment perpetuate Doug and Loretta’s dedication to students’ success and their belief in the continuing need for scholastic excellence in computer science.  Income from this endowment is awarded annually to students majoring or intending to major in computer science, with at least half designated preferably for women students in their freshman or sophomore year.

For all scholarships awarded to freshman, applicants must have, at minimum, a 3.5 cumulative high school GPA.  The award may be continued in subsequent years for a student or students with at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA .  Financial need will also be considered in the selection, and all recipients shall be selected according to the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science’s established  procedures.
