Three Northern Virginia Community College students have been selected to receive the first-of-its-kind Lockheed Martin Vocational Training Scholarship.

Computer and information-sciences students Omar Saaid and Raja Khurram Zilfiqar and engineering student Wilmot Westreicher were awarded scholarships of $6,600 toward their educational pursuits at the college.

Being selected “has definitely motivated me to be proactive about my education and all pieces of it. It still feels surreal to have been selected, and it’s definitely a point of pride for me,” Westreicher said. “Also, it has encouraged me to be excited about the upcoming year. I can’t wait to start learning.”

“It is an honor to have been chosen. As I complete my education at Northern Virginia Community College, I am thankful for receiving this generous gift,” Saaid said. “The scholarship will help ease the financial burden of school and allow me to focus on learning.”


“Through its innovative vocational scholarship program, Lockheed Martin invests in talented students who could one day develop life-changing, cutting-edge technologies,” said Anne M. Kress, president of Northern Virginia Community College. “I am proud that NOVA is supporting the success of these three students and so many others by providing world-class educational and workforce development programs.”
