2019 Hall of Fame Inductees

The Carson Scholars Fund Hall of Fame continues to grow as more accomplished alumni are inducted each year. At the 23rd Annual Maryland Awards Banquet, one of our newest Hall of Fame members, Swetha Prabakaran, officially joined her fellow alumni in the elite Hall of Fame. Several Hall of Fame scholars were present to help pass the torch to Swetha: Rafee Al-Mansur, 2018 inductee; Jeremy Garriga, 2016 inductee; Da’Kuawn Johnson, 2017 inductee; and Megan Rosenberger, 2017 inductee. Swetha had a special escort to the stage for her portrait unveiling: her sister, Sanjitha, a two-time Carson Scholar. Swetha is currently studying computer science and dance and performance studies at the University of California at Berkeley. She is the founder of the non-profit organization Everybody Code Now!, which engages students, especially young women, in the computer science and STEM fields through the organization’s various coding programs.

20 under 30CSF Hall of Fame

At the start of our 20th anniversary season, we introduced the first ever Carson Scholars Fund Hall of Fame, a year-long celebration of individuals whose lives and careers are an integral part of the Fund’s history.

The mission of the Hall of Fame is to honor outstanding Carson Scholar Alumni who are representative of CSF’s mission – those who have demonstrated success and excellence in the work force, who have excelled academically and who have made significant contributions in their communities.
