    Students among 1,000 distinguished students recognized nationwide

    Redmond, Wash. – The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced Wednesday that two Lake Washington School District seniors will receive National Merit Corporate-Sponsored Scholarships:

      Kensho Y. Gendzwill, Redmond H.S. - National Merit Boeing Scholarship
    • James Aidan Dale Linder, Redmond H.S. - National Merit Liberty Mutual Scholarship

    National Merit Corporate-Sponsored Scholarships are financed by about 140 corporations, company foundations and other business organizations. These students are two of only 1,000 distinguished high school seniors nationwide, and just 13 in Washington, to win these scholarships.

    Scholars are selected from students who advance to the Finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship Competition and met the 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 encourage.

    Most of these awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study and provide annual stipends that range from $1,000 to $10,000 per year. 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.
