Four female computer science students have received grants from Kyunghyun Cho's donation. The scholarship recipients in this first distribution round are Hyunkyung Choo, Jiaying Li, Arina Odnoblyudova and Yasmin Sarcheshmehpour.
The scholarships are each worth one thousand euros. The recipients major in Machine Learning, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.

Kyunghyun Cho is an alumnus of the School of Science and associate professor of computer science and data science at New York University. Last year, he made a donation of 30 000 euros to Aalto University's Department of Computer Science, to be distributed as scholarships to female students from outside the European Union who major in Machine Learning, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
The scholarships will continue to be distributed annually until the endowment is exhausted.
