(Boston) — Ten students from among the graduating seniors of the parochial high schools in the Archdiocese of Boston will receive four-year, full-tuition scholarships to Boston University through the Cardinal Medeiros Scholarship Program at a June 1 ceremony at BU’s George Sherman Union, beginning at 7 p.m.

Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley and Boston University President Robert A. Brown will present the students with their scholarships, cumulatively valued at over $1.5 million. Medeiros Scholars are chosen for their academic achievements, demonstrated leadership skills, and contributions to their schools and communities. The scholars were selected by a three-person committee composed of representatives from the President’s Office, BU’s Office of Admissions, and the Archdiocese of Boston.

By the time these students graduate, the university will have enrolled a total of 337 scholars since the program’s inception in 1986, representing a contribution of over $32 million from Boston University to the Greater Boston area and the students of the Archdiocese.

• Edward W. Adams III, Boston College High School
• Daniel H. Bradley, Central Catholic High School
