Northrop Grumman Corp.´s (NYSE: NOC) Azusa facility said it has announced the two winners of its annual Engineering Scholars competition, which will provide USD20,000 in scholarships this fall for graduating San Gabriel Valley-area high school seniors planning to pursue a career in engineering, computer science, physics or math.
Donovan Gonzales from Don Bosco Technical Institute in Rosemead and Bryan Zhong from Bonita High School in La Verne each received the merit-based scholarship of USD10,000 payable in USD2,500 installments over four years during an awards reception and dinner hosted by Northrop Grumman in Monrovia May 27.
The Northrop Grumman Engineering Scholars program is aimed at supporting promising high school seniors who intend to pursue a career in an engineering-related field. Candidates must plan to attend an accredited college or university school of engineering as a full-time student in an approved engineering program. The funds can be used for tuition, books, room and board, and lab fees.
A committee of Northrop Grumman employees selected the Engineering Scholars winners. To be eligible, each scholarship applicant had to be a resident of the San Gabriel Valley area and a graduating senior this spring from a public or accredited private high school in the state. Applicants also had to have a minimum composite SAT score of 1,700 or ACT score of 27 and a minimum GPA of 3.5. Recipients of any other Northrop Grumman-sponsored scholarship were not eligible.
