Comcast is looking to cultivate some leaders and achievers, and you could be one of them.

The cable giant recognizes the country’s best and brightest high school seniors every year through its Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program. The Comcast Foundation provides college scholarships to acknowledge students’ leadership in the classroom and in the community. Since 2001, the company has awarded about $20 million in scholarships to help about 20,000 students pursue a post-secondary future in college.

The program is nomination-based and youth must be nominated by a principal or guidance The  counselor. Only one student per school can be nominated. High school seniors from Comcast communities are awarded for their commitment to community service, academics and demonstrated leadership and are given a base $1,000 scholarship award.  Winners from the Leaders and Achievers pool can go on to win larger scholarships like the Gustave G. Amsterdam Leadership Award and the Comcast Founders Scholarship.

The application deadline is Dec. 5.

Scholarship requirements include:

  • Full-time high school senior currently enrolled at a high school in a community served or approved by Comcast.
  • Student grade point average of 2.8 or higher.
  • Student demonstrates leadership abilities in school activities or through work experiences.
  • Student shows a strong commitment to and involvement in community service.
