The scholars are selected on the basis of academic merit from a field of 1,206 mathematics, science and engineering students nominated by faculties nationwide.

Kilner, a junior from Rockville, Maryland, maintains a 4.0 GPA while pursuing a rigorous academic load, participating in research and staying active in student government.
