A scholarship program for high school seniors interested in pursuing engineering careers


About the program

This scholarship program helps support promising high school seniors who intend to pursue a career in an approved engineering, computer science, mathematics or physics program and who live in communities where Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems has a major presence.
