Two Brahmas Named National Merit Scholars

Congratulations to two Diamond Bar High 2011 graduates who have been named College-Sponsored National Merit Scholarship winners.

They are Qun Zeng  and Emiley Tou.

These stellar students are among about 4,800 winners of National Merit Scholarships financed by U.S. colleges and universities. 1,700 winners were announced today and join 2,900 college-sponsored award recipients who were announced in late May by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. 

This year, 198 higher education institutions are underwriting Merit Scholarship awards through the National Merit Program. Sponsor colleges include about 118 private and 80 public institutions located in 45 states and the District of Columbia.

Officials of each sponsor college selected their scholarship winners from among Finalists in the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program who plan to attend their institution. These awards provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship.

College-sponsored Merit Scholarship winners are a part of the distin­guished group of about 8,300 high school seniors of 2011 who will receive National Merit Scholarships for college undergraduate study worth nearly $35 million.
