Winners of the highest awards made to Freshmen, 34 high school seniors in the Middle West, South, and Far West enter College next fall in possession of coveted National Scholarships.
Announcement was made yesterday by President Conant of the names of the recipients, selected from the 15 states comprising the National Scholarship area.
According to the practice of this aid policy, awards go on the basis of outstanding ability and character, regardless of financial need. Carrying a maximum of $1,000 the first year and $1,200 each year thereafter, the stipend varies in each case, being sufficiently large, when necessary, to meet all of a student's expenses.
If a recipient does satisfactory work in his first year, the scholarship is renewed for the remaining years at College.
Initiated with the Class of 1938, the National Scholarship plan for next year has embraced successful candidates in 13 states, California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Washington, and Wisconsin.
The names and brief figures on the men of 1942 appear in the adjoining column.
