Class 101 students distinguish themselves in all aspects of student life. Among the most impressive ways a student can make themselves known is with the National Merit® Scholarship Program. Every September, some 50,000 students are recognized for their high-achieving Preliminary SAT results as a commended student, semi-finalist or finalist.
This year, we are proud to recognize that 26 of our Class 101 students have qualified as semi-finalists for the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program. Many have been awarded scholarship prizes. National Merit scholarships range from one-time $2,500 scholarships to corporate- or college-sponsored scholarships at full tuition. Additionally, 19 of our Class 101 students have been recognized as National Merit commended students.
Semi-finalist students recognized today can apply for recognition as a finalist for additional scholarships. Around 15,000 students from among these applicants will be chosen as finalists to receive these awards.
The National Merit Scholarship can make a great impact for a student as they work to make college more affordable. More than that, recognition as a National Merit Finalist, Semi-Finalist, or Commended student can make a student’s application stand out.
Congratulations to these Class 101 students. We are so very proud of you! Class of 2023 Semi-Finalists and Commended students include:
