This year the scholarships were financed by 198 colleges and universities from 45 states and the District of Columbia.

Officials of each college selected from a finalists pool who would be the recipient of their scholarship. The scholarships provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship.

There were 1.5 million juniors from some 22,000 high schools who went out for the scholarship, but only 8,300 were awarded scholarships.
