Although they thought they were just spending the evening at a Boston Celtics game, two local students were surprised to find that they were the recipients of a Sun Life Rising Star scholarship.

Aylin Garcia Soto, a Roslindale resident, and Melvin Harrison, a Roxbury resident, were each presented with a $5,000 scholarship for college at Wednesday’s game.

In addition to the scholarships, which were paid for by Sun Life Financial, the business also contributed $50,000 grants to the Jamaica Plain-based non-profit Bottom Line and Dorchester-based non-profit Brookview House.
