Software Firm Starts Giving Scholarships

Cardiff Software Inc. recently announced the first recipients of the Joseph C. Larson Entrepreneurial Scholarship.

The San Diego Foundation, which administers the awards on behalf of Cardiff, a San Diego-based forms processing and e-business automation solutions firm, recently presented the scholarships at a ceremony at Point Loma Nazarene University.

This year’s scholarship recipients are John Stuart of Point Loma Nazarene University and Durba Mitra and Matthew Kruse of North High School in Fargo, N.D. A total of six students applied for the scholarship.

The scholarships introduced by Cardiff Software are designed to recognize students nationwide with an entrepreneurial spirit.

“The goal of this scholarship is to provide students the opportunity to create a promising future,” said Dennis Clerke, president and CEO of Cardiff.

The three students will each receive $2,500 to help with their education and make their dreams of becoming an entrepreneur a reality.

“It is important for our community to work together to help the next generation prepare for the future,” said Valerie A. Attisha, director of scholarships at the San Diego Foundation.

The Joseph C. Larson Entrepreneurial Scholarship, named after Cardiff’s founder, is awarded annually to a few graduating high school seniors or students who have successfully completed at least two full academic years toward their undergraduate degree at an accredited four-year institution.

Each candidate must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average. In addition, applicants must submit a two-page essay explaining how they plan on using their education to further their entrepreneurial goals.

The San Diego Foundation has awarded more than $165 million in grants to local communities since its inception in 1975. Its goals are to improve the quality of life in the communities, assist donors in building and preserving assets for charitable purposes, and monitor and assess the changing needs of the region.

Cardiff’s integrated eTransactions solutions are used by more than 20,000 organizations to automate a wide range of business transactions and processes. Cardiff’s Information Capture, eForms Management, and eDocument Automation products work together to replace manual processing with automated online systems.
