SCS students National merit named scholarship semifinalists

Posted: Updated:

Twenty-eight (28) Shelby County Schools seniors have been named 2014 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). These students were selected based on their performance on the Preliminary SAT. These academically talented young men and women will have an opportunity to compete for nearly 8,000 scholarships worth more than $35 million that will be awarded in the spring of 2014.

Each year, nearly 16,000 high school seniors across the nation are selected as scholarship Semifinalists by the NMSC. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, and includes the highest-scoring PSAT students from each state.

To become Finalists, students and their high schools will now submit a detailed scholarship application which includes their academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities and honors or awards received.
