Ginder and Henry were two of more than 3,200 winners of National Merit Scholarships financed by U.S. colleges and universities. Officials of each sponsor college select their scholarship winners from the finalists in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program who plan to attend their institution.
The awards provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship.
Ginder received his scholarship from Tennessee Tech University where he will study physics. Henry’s scholarship is from the University of Chicago, where he plans to major in computer engineering.
