The Georgia Institute of Technology has named Nicholas Selby of Ahwatukee Foothills one of 75 President’s Scholars. A mechanical engineering major, Selby represents the top 1 percent of early applicants to Georgia Tech.
Considered the most prestigious merit award offered to incoming Georgia Tech first-year students, the President’s Scholarship emphasizes scholarship, leadership, progress and service. Recipients are selected by a committee of Georgia Tech admissions professionals, scholarship administrators, faculty and President’s Scholar alumni. More than 530 semifinalists were evaluated.
Over four years, President’s Scholars from Georgia will be awarded a package valued at approximately $60,000 while out-of-state recipients will receive $112,000.
