Congratulations to the nine Bellevue School District students who were named winners of the Corporate-Sponsored National Merit Scholarship.

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 National Merit 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 engage.

Most of the awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study and provide additional stipends.  Some provide a single payment between $2,500 and $5,000.  Recipients can use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university of their choice.
