Leaders and Achievers®
Scholarship Program Recognizes Students' Achievements Both in and out of
the Classroom

Comcast NBCUniversal today announced that it has awarded approximately
$212,000 in scholarships for the 2018-19 school year to 192 California
students as part of its annual Leaders and Achievers®
Scholarship Program. The program, funded by the Comcast Foundation, is a
one-time, $1,000 scholarship awarded to the best and brightest high
school seniors for their community service, academic performance and
leadership skills. Since 2001, more than $28 million has been awarded to
nearly 27,000 high school seniors across the country as part of the
Leaders and Achievers Program.

"Our Leaders and Achievers Scholarship winners are exceptional students
who are committed to academic excellence and community service," said
John Gauder, Regional Vice President, Comcast California. "We are
honored to recognize their achievements and excited to support them as
they continue their educational journey."

Comcast, joined by Alex Padilla, California Secretary of State,
recognized the students at a special event held at the State Capitol
today. Two students, Monica Rivera, a resident of Sacramento and student
at Luther Burbank High School and Danning Yu, a resident of Sunnyvale
and student at Archbishop Mitty High School, were each selected to
receive an additional $10,000 Comcast Founders Scholarship - instituted
in honor of Ralph J. Roberts, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Comcast
Corporation.

"By investing in our youth today will ensure that they are responsible
citizens tomorrow," said Secretary of State Alex Padilla. "I
congratulate all Comcast NBCUniversal scholarship recipients for their
community service, civic engagement and academic achievement."

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides
scholarships to students who strive to achieve their full potential, who
are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved
in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students. The
philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity
to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The
program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement, and the
value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
