Applications now being accepted for 12th annual Northrop Grumman engineering scholars program

Applications are now being accepted for the 12th annual Northrop Grumman Engineering Scholars competition, which will provide  $240,000 in college scholarships across Maryland this year to promising high school seniors interested in studying engineering.

“Through this unique scholarship program, Northrop Grumman remains dedicated to encouraging Maryland’s brightest students to pursue a career in engineering,” said Gloria A. Flach, corporate vice president and president of the company’s Baltimore-based Electronic Systems sector.

Individual scholarships of $10,000, payable in $2,500 installments over four years, will be awarded by Northrop Grumman this spring to a qualified graduating high school senior in each of Maryland’s 23 counties and Baltimore City. 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 may be used for tuition, books, room and board, and lab fees.

A committee of Northrop Grumman employees will select the Engineering Scholars winners. Each applicant must be a resident of Maryland and a graduating senior in the spring of 2014 from a public or accredited private high school in the state. Among the eligibility requirements, applicants must 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 scholarships are not eligible. The application deadline is March 24.

Brochures detailing the eligibility requirements for the scholarship program have been sent to school superintendents within the state. To apply for the Northrop Grumman Engineering Scholars program, students must complete the online application available at: http://www.northropgrumman.com/CorporateResponsibility/Community/Pages/EngScholars.aspx

One of the state’s largest private employers, Northrop Grumman is a significant financial and in-kind contributor to educational outreach programs aimed at encouraging young people to consider engineering and science-related career fields. The Electronic Systems sector supports multiple High School Involvement Partnership programs to excite student interest in science, technology, engineering and math. Northrop Grumman is also a major corporate sponsor of the Maryland Teacher of the Year competition.
