Raytheon Company awards local brothers scholarships

Solana Pacific sixth grade student Arjun Nichani and his brother, Carmel Valley Middle School eighth grade student Eshaan Nichani both received scholarships from Raytheon Company, two of only 150 middle school students in the country to receive the honor.

The students were each awarded $1,000 scholarships to be used for a math, science or technology camp or program, or the scholarship can be saved for college.

Additionally, both Arjun and Eshaan’s schools will be rewarded with a matching grant from Raytheon. Raytheon has awarded $300,000 to schools and students across the country as part of its MathMovesU program, an initiative designed to engage middle school students in math and science,

The 150 scholarship recipients were selected from a pool of middle school students who created multimedia presentations that illustrated the importance of math in their daily lives and answered the question, “How does math put the action in your passion?”
