National Merit Semifinalists

Each year, a select group of high-achieving seniors from the nation’s high schools are recognized as semifinalists in the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These outstanding students are chosen based on their exceptional academic abilities and potential for collegiate success. With their top 1% qualifying test scores, they join approximately 16,000 semifinalists nationwide. In the coming spring, they’ll have the chance to compete for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships collectively worth nearly $30 million. Congratulations to these scholars on their remarkable achievements!
