The 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program semifinalists were announced on Wednesday, September 15, 2021. Among them are two students from Central Catholic.
Approximately 16,000 semifinalists were named in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be offered next spring.
To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level. Around 95 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
Here are the Central Catholic students who where named Semifinalists:
