20 FAU High School Students Named National Merit Finalists


Wednesday, Mar 01, 2023

A total of 20 Florida Atlantic University High School students have been named finalists in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Competition. To become a National Merit finalist, more than 1.5 million high school juniors took the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The highest-scoring entrants in each state were named semifinalists and represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. 

To become a National Merit finalist, each semifinalist submitted a detailed scholarship application, which included their academic record, extracurricular activities, leadership abilities, employment, honors and awards. They were also endorsed by a high school official, wrote an essay, and performed well on the SAT. The 2023 National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced in the summer of 2023. 

Congratulations Students!
