Sixteen Stanford students have been honored with Siebel Scholar awards presented by the Siebel Foundation in Redwood City, California.

Since 2000, the Siebel Scholar award has recognized exceptional graduate students at leading schools of business, computer science, bioengineering and energy science. Siebel Scholars are chosen by the deans of their respective schools based on outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated leadership. Each will receive a $35,000 award for their final year of graduate study.

The 95 Siebel Scholars named this year join a select list of more than 1,100 entrepreneurs, researchers, community leaders and philanthropists who are past Siebel Scholars. Through the program, scholars are expected to influence the future through technology, policy, and economic and social decision-making.

The private Siebel Foundation was formed in 1996 by Thomas and Stacey Siebel to support projects and organizations that improve quality of life, environment, and education. Siebel Scholars advise the Siebel Foundation and gather each year for the Siebel Scholars Conference where they explore social issues with fellow scholars, heads of state, scientists, lawmakers and other noted experts.

Among its many initiatives, the Siebel Foundation funds projects to fight drug addiction, reduce homelessness, further education and research, improve public health and realize alternative energy solutions.
