McDonald, upon advancing to the finalist level, will compete for one of the 700 one-time National Achievement $2500 Scholarships, which will be awarded on a regional basis.  In addition, corporate and business sponsors will underwrite about 100 Achievement Scholarships for Finalists who meet the criteria set by the grantor. Finalists will be selected on the basis of their abilities, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
