By Special to the Monitor

Scott Carlsten, a sophomore at Los Alamos High School, can worry a little less about playing for his college education. Carlsten is the recipient of the $25,000 Distinguished Award of the EnergySolutions Foundation scholarship. This is in addition to the initial $2,000 scholarship he received from the Foundation earlier this year.

“Because the scholarship program is an extension of our commitment to this great community where EnergySolutions employees live and work, I am so happy for the difference this will make in Scott’s life,” Val Christensen, CEO of EnergySolutions, said.

Exemplary students from eligible schools in eight states and Canada were selected to receive a $2,000 merit-based scholarship. All recipients were then entered into the competition for the three Distinguished Awards. Carlsten was selected from a pool of applicants from Canada, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington and other New Mexico students to receive the additional $25,000 Distinguished Award scholarship, which is to be used in math, science or engineering studies.

A student in Georgia was selected to receive the $2,500 Distinguished Award and a student in Washington state was selected to receive the $5,000 award.
