"Northrop Grumman is pleased to once again sponsor this unique engineering scholarship competition, which draws outstanding applicants from throughout the state of Maryland," said Gloria A. Flach, corporate vice president and president of the company's Baltimore-based Electronic Systems sector. "It is our honor to provide opportunities for Maryland's best-qualified math and science students to further their education as they pursue engineering-related careers."

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 Maryland 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. The committee also took into consideration work experience, community involvement and extracurricular activities.

Following are the names of the students from 23 Maryland counties and the city of Baltimore­ who each will be receiving merit-based scholarships of $10,000 – payable in four yearly $2,500 installments – during an awards reception and dinner hosted by Northrop Grumman at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel on June 18.
