WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GEICO recognized 36 students from colleges and universities across the country, each earning $2,500 GEICO Achievement Awards for their exceptional academic accomplishments and campus leadership.
A complete list of winners is posted on the GEICO Achievement Award Program page.
More than 25 years ago, GEICO launched the Achievement Award program to recognize undergraduate students for their accomplishments inside the classroom, around campus and in their communities. The program is designed to encourage continued academic success and a commitment to leadership and community service, and to provide some relief from school-related expenses for deserving students.
"The Achievement Awards program is a GEICO tradition that we are proud to uphold in support of outstanding undergraduate students across the country," said Bill Roberts, GEICO president and chief operating officer. "Each one of this year's recipients has proven that they have what it takes to be among the next generation of great leaders. We look forward to seeing them continue to succeed in their futures and careers."
To be eligible for the GEICO Achievement Award Program, students must be currently enrolled in a full-time bachelor's degree program at an accredited four-year college or university, possess sophomore or junior status, have at least a 3.0 overall GPA, and be majoring in business, computer science, mathematics or a related program, including Economics, Finance, Marketing, Management, Information Systems, Computer Engineering, Statistics or Actuarial Science. At this time, our program is not open to students pursuing degrees in liberal arts, the natural sciences or most engineering programs.
