SIMI VALLEY, CA -- The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and GE announced Wednesday the 22 students who were awarded the GE Reagan Foundation Scholarship.  In its inaugural year, the program awards students who embody the vision and values personified by President Reagan, including leadership, drive, integrity and citizenship.  Each student will receive $10,000 a year, for up to four years, to be applied to student tuition, room, and board while the recipient is pursuing a bachelor’s degree at an accredited U.S. college or university. In addition, recipients are invited to participate in the first Recipients Retreat at the Ronald Reagan Library this summer.  

Over the ten year program, up to 200 four-year college scholarships totaling over $8 million will be awarded. John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, said “The thousands of GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program applications we received proved that today’s youth are determined and inspiring leaders.
