Comcast NBCUniversal announced it has awarded about $75,000 in scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year to 30 New Jersey students as part of its annual Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program. One of this year’s scholarship recipients is Deptford Township High School graduate Megan Brown.
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 Stephanie L. Kosta, vice president of government and regulatory affairs for Comcast Freedom Region. “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.”
