Microsoft Adds Maria Klawe to Board of Directors; Announces $0.13 Dividend

Microsoft has added a new member to their Board of Directors. Maria Klawe, Ph.D., president of Harvey Mudd College since 2006, brings the Board back to 10 members. Klawe was previously dean of engineering and a professor of computer science at Princeton University from 2003 to 2006.

"Maria has made significant research contributions to computer science and mathematics, and we are very fortunate to have her join Microsoft's board of directors," said Bill Gates, Microsoft chairman. "In particular, I think her close connection to university students and the way they shape computing trends will bring an important perspective to the board."

Microsoft also announced a dividend of $0.13. The dividend is payable on to June 18, 2009 to shareholders on record as of May 21, 2009.
