Three Seniors Earn Semifinalist Merit Scholar Titles

Dhruv Balaji ’23, Gavin Yang ’23 and Navaneeth Rajan ’23 have been named semifinalists in the 2022-2023 National Merit Scholarship Program.

These students are among the approximately 16,000 semifinalists named nationwide this year, each moving one step closer to qualifying for one of roughly 7,500 National Merit Scholarships. According to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), all winners will be selected from this group of finalists, and "designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies, without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin or religious preference.”

The NMSC requires students to submit an extensive application that includes recommendations and an essay along with academic record and subsequent SAT scores, school and community involvement, jobs, demonstrations of leadership and honors and awards.

Congratulations to our semifinalists!
