The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in Simi Valley on Tuesday announced the winners of the 2019 GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program in partnership with Boston conglomerate General Electric.
This year, the program awarded 18 undergraduate students across the United States with scholarships of $10,000 a year for up to four years toward college tuition and room and board. Recipients are attending such schools as Harvard University, Dartmouth College, Georgia Institute of Technology and University of Washington. No California students received scholarships.
"We are proud to award college scholarships in President Reagan's name to these proactive, informed and engaged citizens, who will only continue to make a difference in their communities and our nation in the years to come,” said John Heubusch, the Foundation’s executive director, in a statement.
In the nine years since its inception, the scholarship program has awarded $7 million to 175 students.
The Reagan foundation is a nonprofit charged with continuing the legacy of President Ronald Reagan. It operates the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, also in Simi Valley, which archives millions of pages of presidential and personal papers and tens of thousands of artifacts mapping the lives of Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
