The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) has made its final of four announcements of scholarship winners. The first announcement presented the winners of corporate sponsorships, the second, National Merit-sponsored awards, and the third and fourth, college-sponsored gifts.
These scholars, all now college freshmen, were chosen from the finalists in the National Merit Scholarship competition, based on their PSAT scores from their junior year. According to NMSC, “College-sponsored awards provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship.” This year 201 colleges and universities participated.
Congratulations to Harker’s five newest scholarship recipients: Stephanie Guo (University of Southern California), Juliane Tran (Rice University), Priya Thumma (St. Louis University), Chetan Vakkalagadda (Washington University in St. Louis) and Kevin Xu (University of Southern California).
