Emily A. Lauber, of Indiana, is among the approximately 1,800 additional winners of National Merit Scholarships financed by colleges and universities.
Lauber, a graduate of Indiana Area Senior High School, is expected to focus on civil engineering at Arizona State University in Tempe.
These Merit Scholar designees join approximately 2,500 other college-sponsored award recipients who were announced in late May.
Officials of each sponsor college selected their scholarship winners from among the finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program who will attend their institution.
The college-sponsored awards provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship.
