To date, more than $30 million has been awarded to nearly 28,000 students nationwide through the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program.

The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement, and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community. 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.
