Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI), has selected the recipients of its 2023 AUI Scholarship, each of whom will be awarded a $3,500 renewable scholarship ($14,000 over four years to each scholar) to support their academic careers. This year, 19 outstanding high school seniors were selected based on their academic achievement, community involvement, and leadership skills.
Funded by AUI, the scholarship program recognizes the achievements of the children of full and part-time employees of AUI and its affiliated centers, and assists them with the ongoing costs of collegiate education.
Among this year’s recipients, 16 are the children of staff members at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, and are located throughout NRAO’s facilities in New Mexico, Virginia, Texas, and Chile, and two are the children of staff members at the Green Bank Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia.
The AUI Scholarship program is conducted by International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc.
