Two California high school seniors have won scholarships through a Northrop Grumman program that encourages graduates to pursue engineering, computer science, physics and math careers.
Chandler W. Woo of Polytechnic School and Lucas James Del Toro of Bonita High School will receive $10,000 each over four years as winners of the Engineering Scholars competition, Northrop announced Tuesday.
“Northrop Grumman is honored to sponsor this scholarship competition that enables the local community’s best-qualified math and science students to pursue an engineering education,” said Stephen J. Toner, vice president of the military and civil space business in Northrop’s electronic systems sector.
The annual Engineering Scholars program is open to qualifying students with a minimum 3.5 GPA and a composite score of 1,700 on the SAT or 27 on the ACT.
A panel of Northrop employees also considers participants’ community involvement, work experience and extracurricular activities.
