Douglas P. and Margaret R. Colbeth Scholarship
Established by Doug and Margaret Colbeth in 1995, the scholarship was originally named the Spyglass Endowed Scholarship Fund. Doug was the president of Spyglass Inc., a World Wide Web technology company based in Naperville, Illinois from 1990-2000. Spyglass was co-founded by alumni Tim Krauskopf and Brand Fortner.
In 2000, after Spyglass was acquired, Doug and his wife established the Colbeth Child Mental Health Clinic within the Institute of Juvenile Research at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Medicine. This state-of-the-art facility diagnoses and treats Chicago area children who suffer from bi-polar disorder, autism, schizophrenia, ADHD and other brain diseases. Doug is also the co-founder and CEO of MedCircle, an organization that aims to help those who live with mental illness find the help they need. The purpose of this scholarship is to attract and retain more women in the field of computer science, and is based on academic merit.
