Four Mason students are among 64 Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky high school seniors to receive college-funded scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corp.
Scholarships range from $500 to $2,000 per year, renewable for up to four years. Exact amounts of the scholarships are not released by National Merit.
The Mason winners are listed below and include the school issuing the scholarshop and the student’s intended career field:
- Cassi Lawless, University of Cincinnati, physical therapy/orthopedics;
- Abraham Muhlbaum, University of Central Florida, hospitality management;
- Morgan Schneider, Vanderbilt University, engineering;
- Benjamin Stecher, Ohio State University, business.
The awards come from 118 private and 80 public colleges and universities in 45 states and the District of Columbia.
This is the third of four releases of corporate, college and National Merit scholarships that are being awarded to National Merit finalists in the 2011 competition. The last group of winners will be announced in July.
The recipients – who represent less than 1 percent of all seniors nationally – were among 1.5 million students who entered the 2011 competition by taking the 2009 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as juniors.
