New “Boston High Scholars” honored

Boston city sealTwenty-one of the best and brightest of this year’s Boston public high school graduates are the latest class of honorees in the Boston University Boston High School Scholarship Program, the largest and longest-running such program for urban public high school students in the nation.  In ceremonies hosted by BU President Robert Brown and Mayor Thomas Menino, the 21 were awarded $3.3 million worth of four-year full-tuition scholarships –bringing to $132 million in scholarships for 1,759 scholars since then BU President John Silber launched the program in 1973.  This year’s winners share an “upward bound” weekend in New Hampshire before spending next week on the BU campus in an orientation program of lectures, labs and receiving their housing assignments for next fall.
