The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced that Redmond High School senior Kelly Jiang from Sammamish and Nikola Tesla STEM High School senior Lynsey Liu, also of Sammamish have both received National Merit Corporate-Sponsored Scholarships.

The scholarships are financed by about 200 corporations, company foundations and other business organizations. Jiang and Liu are two of only 1,000 high school seniors nationwide to win these scholarships.

Scholars are selected from students who advance to the finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship Competition and met the criteria of their scholarship sponsors. Jiang will receive a National Merit Liberty Mutual Scholarship. Liu will receive a National Merit James E. Casey Scholarship, which was created by the United Parcel Service (UPS) for children of UPS employees. This scholarship is supported by the UPS Foundation in honor of the founder of UPS, James E. Casey.

Most of these awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study and provide annual stipends that range from $500 to $10,000 per year. Some provide a single payment between $2,500 and $5,000. Recipients can use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university of their choice.
