Students from across Queens were awarded full and partial scholarships thanks to Martin Luther School in Maspeth.

Martin Luther School (MLS) in Maspeth is helping some really smart students from schools across the borough pay for their tuition through several academic scholarships.

In all, 19 students were recently awarded Academic Excellence Scholarships, and one student earned the Jill Rudzewick Memorial Scholarship, for being the top scorers on last November’s Academic Excellence Scholarship Exam.

The awards were given based on their performance on the Test of Achievement Proficiency, which tests a student’s reading comprehension and math skills. The amount of each scholarship is based the student’s ranking, determined by their composite score.

The top-scoring students were awarded a full-tuition scholarship; students with the next highest scores earned half-tuition scholarships; while $2,500 per year and $1,500 per year grants were awarded to the next highest scorers.

This year, the Jill Rudzewick Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Veronica Constantinides from St. Stanislaus Kostka School in Maspeth.

MLS created this half-tuition award in celebration of the life and service of Rudzewick and her family, to the community and the St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, which is their home parish.
