Alumnus and Scientist Establishes Scholarship

The College has received $20,000 for the Violet & Hung Nguyen Mathematics Scholarship, which was created through an education grant awarded to Dr. Hung Nguyen ’78 after he was voted Test Engineer of the Year by Test & Measurement World magazine.

Nguyen, who majored in mathematics at Trinity, is the chief scientist at Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems. He designated that the grant be used to help further studies in math and science related courses at the College.

As Raytheon’s chief scientist, Nguyen has spent more than 20 years designing, integrating, and testing advanced airborne radar systems.

Nguyen came to Trinity from Vietnam. According to professor emeritus of mathematics Richard Kooy, math was a “universal language” at which his former student excelled.

“Trinity was close to Hung’s heart,” said Kooy. “It is nice to see him give back to the College.”
