(Boston, Mass.) — Boston University will award four-year, full-tuition scholarships to 14 Boston Archdiocesan high school students as part of the University’s Cardinal Humberto Medeiros Scholarship Program. Cardinal Bernard Law and Boston University President Jon Westling will present the awards at a ceremony honoring the students on Tuesday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the School of Management’s Executive Leadership Center at 595 Commonwealth Avenue.

Boston University Chancellor John Silber established the program in 1986 to honor students from Boston Archdiocesan high schools for their academic achievement, leadership qualities and service to their schools and communities.

The Medeiros Scholars, all of whom are members of the National Honor Society and rank in the top 10 of their graduating classes, represent the most distinguished students in Boston’s Archdiocesan high schools. Of the 14, 10 participate in varsity sports; 11 are involved in community service; four volunteer at area homeless shelters; three volunteer at hospitals; one coaches youth basketball; and one created and hosts a music website.

With this year’s recipients, Boston University has enrolled 198 Medeiros Scholars, contributing more than $16 million in scholarships to Archdiocesan students.
