Elena ’23 has been named a finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
About 1.5 million students enter the program each year by taking the PSAT. Elena was among 16,000 semifinalists announced in fall 2022, meaning she scored in the top 1 percent. About 7,250 students will be selected as winners starting in March.
Winners are selected by a committee of college admission officers and high school counselors based on students’ abilities, skills, and accomplishments. As a finalist, Elena is in the running for a $2,500 scholarship.
