September 19, 2018

Montgomery County Public Schools has a total 151 semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship competition, 14 from local UpCounty high schools. The semifinalists will compete nationally for scholarships that will be announced in the spring. The competition is sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

   Semifinalists from MCPS were selected from among high school juniors who were top scorers on the 2017 PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Approximately 16,000 semifinalists across the nation will be considered for advancement to the finalist stage of the competition.

   Finalists will be considered for $2,500 National Merit scholarships, plus additional corporate-sponsored and college/university-sponsored scholarships that will be announced later in the school year.
