The 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program, conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation(NMSC), is an annual academic competition to recognize and honor the academically talented students of the United States. Students are chosen based on PSAT/NMSQT selection index scores. Approximately 16,000 of the high scorers, representing less than 1 percent of the nation’s high school graduating seniors, qualify as semifinalists. These students have the opportunity to advance in the competition for some 7,140 merit scholarship awards. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist standing. Congratulations to Lauren Harris, Nicholas Taglia, Andrew Uhle and Immanuel Liu for being named National Merit Semifinalists for the Class of 2024!
