Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program Recognizes Students’ Achievements
Both In and Out of the Classroom
Comcast NBCUniversal today announced it has awarded approximately $25,000 in scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year to 10 Delaware students as part of its annual Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program. Students are selected for their outstanding community service, academic performance, and leadership skills. The award, funded by the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation, is a one-time, $2,500 scholarship to be used toward undergraduate education-related expenses. Since 2001, more than $34 million has been awarded to about 30,000 high school seniors across the country as part of the Leaders and Achievers program.
“We are honored to recognize the amazing achievements of our Leaders and Achievers scholarship winners and to help them further their education,” said Sean Looney, Vice President of Government Affairs, Northeast Division, Comcast. “They are top achievers in academics, leaders in the community and leaders among their peers. They represent our future, and Comcast NBCUniversal is proud to support them.”
“Congratulations to all of our Leaders and Achievers scholarship recipients in Delaware,” said Governor John Carney. “Your strong academic performance, leadership skills and investment in our communities is something to be proud of. Thank you to Comcast for recognizing these students.”
