CITIZEN is proud to continue, for the third year, a scholarship program to support academic achievement throughout the country. The company will present a cash award to 25 students in the U.S. based on the student’s academic accomplishment under the auspices of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
These awards, named the National Merit Citizen Watch Scholarships, will be given to high school students graduating with the class of 2015. Along with achieving excellent academic records, there is a preference for student recipients who were also members of their high school sponsored sports teams and other extracurricular activities. CITIZEN is proud to award a scholarship to these select students.
In addition to receiving this prestigious cash scholarship, each student will be awarded with a CITIZEN timepiece and have their name featured in a national ad created by CITIZEN in the New York Times.
Internships within Citizen Watch Company of America will also be offered to the winners.
