Comcast is currently seeking nominations from high school principals and guidance counselors for The Comcast Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program.

Leaders and Achievers, funded through the Comcast Foundation, recognizes high school seniors from Comcast communities for their commitment to community service, academics and demonstrated leadership. To acknowledge these accomplishments, Leaders and Achievers students are awarded one-time scholarships, with a base award of $1,000.

Recipients may also be eligible for scholarships at higher levels, such as the Gustave G. Amsterdam Leadership Award and the Comcast Founders Scholarship, awarded locally from the eligible pool of Leaders and Achievers winners.

Since the inception of the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Program in 2000, more than $24 million in scholarships has been awarded to approximately 23,000 students. More than 53 percent of the scholarships awarded last year benefitted students from diverse backgrounds.

The application deadline is December 3, 2015 for scholarships awarded in support of the 2016-17 academic year.
