• More than 1,000 distinguished high school seniors have won corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship awards. Scholars were selected from students who advanced to the finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship competition and met criteria of their scholarship sponsors. Corporate sponsors provide scholarships for finalists who are children of their employees, who are residents of communities the company serves, or who plan to pursue college majors or careers the sponsor wishes to encourage. Charles C. Lu of Garnet Valley High School, a likely business major, won the National Merit Citizen Watch Scholarship, and Alice Liu of Unionville High School, who is planning a career in science research, received the National Merit Metlife Foundation Scholarship.
