CACI Announces 2009 Scholarship Program Recipients

April 23, 2009

Partnership With National Merit Scholarship Corporation Reflects CACI Employee Focus, Emphasis on Education

ARLINGTON, Va., April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) today announced the 2009 recipients of its CACI Scholarship Program, implemented in partnership with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). In recognizing and rewarding students who demonstrate academic excellence, CACI’s ongoing program reflects the company’s long-time employee focus and corporate emphasis on supporting education.

Begun in 2006, the CACI Scholarship Program annually sponsors five college undergraduate scholarships of $1500 per year, for up to four years of college undergraduate study. Three of these scholarships are awarded to college-bound children of full-time, permanent CACI employees. Two other scholarships are awarded to applicants outside of CACI who demonstrate excellence in the fields of science, math, or technology. Applications for the 2010 CACI Scholarships are now also being evaluated.

The CACI Scholarships are competitive and based exclusively on educational performance, as measured through testing and related demonstrations of academic proficiency. So that candidate selection is made by the most qualified organization, an NMSC committee of experienced professionals chooses all the winners by evaluating the critical academic factors of each eligible candidate. The 2009 recipients were notified privately in messages to the students and their families. Funding begins in the Fall of 2009.

CACI also supports education through its Project Philanthropy program, through which CACI employees can assist in such initiatives as the adopt-a-school program, tutoring, science fairs, field trips, and technical assistance in the classroom. In addition, the company offers educational opportunities through its award-winning CACI Virtual University and provides a tuition reimbursement program. CACI and its employees have a long history of participating in academic initiatives that help young people achieve their educational goals.

According to Paul Cofoni, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, “CACI is pleased to partner with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation to maintain educational opportunities for our employees and their families. National Merit Scholarships represent the highest available academic honors for high school students, and support our nation’s future. We look forward to the future contributions of our scholarship recipients as they support America’s leadership in science, math and technology.”

Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board, said, “The CACI Scholarship Program continues our company’s history of educational support for our employees and their families. It focuses on the technical skills that are so critical to our country’s future. Just as we support the men and women who lead and defend our nation today, we are honored to help prepare our children to be the leaders of tomorrow.”
