NHS senior Elliot Macolino has been selected as a recipient of the
Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship. Along with receiving a $10,000 per
year scholarship for four years, Elliot is also guaranteed a paid
engineering internship with Amazon after his first year of college.
This prestigious scholarship is only awarded to 100 students nationwide,
and is a mark of a student’s incredible aptitude in the areas of
engineering, academic excellence, and leadership. In Amazon’s letter to
Elliot, they commended him for his help in sparking “a generation of
leaders in computer science,” and that the scholarship itself is a
reflection of appreciation for all the work he has done in the field of
computer science thus far.
Elliot is highly involved in Northport High School’s Academy of
Information Technology program, and desires to pursue a career in the
informational technology field.
“I am so grateful to have received this scholarship and opportunity,”
said Elliot Macolino, “and to have had the privilege to be involved in
Northport’s Academy of Informational Technology! It helped me find the
direct path to my future.”
