The Comcast Foundation, founded in 1999 to provide charitable support to its local communities and to empower and enrich lives, today announced the 91 recipients in Washington State of its annual Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program in 2011.

“Comcast is proud of its Leaders & Achievers scholarship recipients.  They represent some of the best and brightest high school seniors who also demonstrate civic involvement in the communities we serve across the country,” said Charisse Lillie, Vice President, Community Investment of Comcast Corporation and Executive President of the Comcast Foundation. “We are thrilled to support their educational efforts with these scholarships.”

“These young people have worked incredibly hard to build remarkable track records of leadership and commitment to help their communities. We’re proud to honor their effort by helping to fulfill their dreams of education,” said Len Rozek, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Washington market.

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program provides one-time $1000 scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students.  The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to be prepared for the future, to engage youth in their communities, and to demonstrate the importance of civic involvement, and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.

Since the program’s inception there have been over 15,000 scholarship winners totaling more than $15.4 million.
