2006 Apple Scholars
Apple has announced the 2006 Apple Scholars, selecting "ten winners out of an overwhelming number of applicants," according to the company's webpage. The program selected the 10 college-bound high school students based on each student's innovative use of technology in academics. The winners included Nick Biere, John Coburn, Michelle Crowther, Paul Ginart, Vicki Hsu, Mitchell Murphy Raj Ranade, Zoe Ross-Silverman, Lauren Williamson, and Muthanna Yacoub. Apple, however, did not provide any highlights or details on their use of technology. The company will give each winner a MacBook Pro, iPod nano, and $2000 cash as they head to campus this fall.
