2005 Siemens National Merit Scholarship

The Siemens Foundation has announced the 2004-05 winners of the annual National Merit Scholarships, awarded to children of Siemens operating company employees in the United States. Sixteen exceptional high school seniors in California, Georgia, Florida, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, each receive a college scholarship from the Siemens Foundation totaling $16,000, awarded in installments of $4,000 per academic year.

For more than ten years, Siemens has been a proud sponsor of National Merit Scholarships for children of Siemens employees who work in a variety of Siemens operating companies throughout the United States. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) and by meeting published entry/participation requirements.

Winners are chosen on the basis of academic record throughout high school, test scores, school recommendations, significant contribution to the school and community, and the student’s statement of goals and interests. Family financial circumstances are not taken into consideration in the selection of winners. All phases of the competition, including the selection of winners and payment of awards, are handled by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), an independent not-for-profit organization.

High school students who are children of regular, active, full-time employees of Siemens Corporation and its subsidiaries are eligible for the award. Applicants must meet all requirements for participation in the National Merit Scholarship Program as published in the PSAT/NMSQT Student Bulletin. An applicant must be a U.S. citizen, in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident, or have applied for permanent residence.
