SAN JOSE, Calif, October 10, 2017 - Integrated Device Technology, Inc.

IDT's "Acts of Giving" corporate responsibility initiative partners with local organizations that make a difference by providing guidance and support to young people who face varying degrees of challenges. These two scholarships have been initiated through a partnership with Sunday Friends. Sunday Friends is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit empowering families to break the generational cycle of poverty by fostering positive development in children while educating and guiding parents to support their children's life success.
The 2017 IDT Scholars from Sunday Friends are Keily Manzano and Daniel Duran.
