Eight Trinity Prep Seniors Offered National Merit Scholarships

 

Trinity Prep seniors John Baldwin, Will Driscoll, Setareh Gooshvar, Andrew Kwa, Dominic Martinez, Andrew Miller, Olivia Miller, and Jackie Wang have each been offered college-sponsored National Merit Scholarships.

The National Merit Corporation offers several types of scholarships including college-sponsored scholarships.

Approximately 200 colleges and universities underwrite more than 4,800 National Merit Scholarships annually. Only National Merit Finalists who plan to attend a college or university that sponsors Merit Scholarship Awards can be considered for one. Winners are chosen by officials of the sponsor college or university.

In order to be considered for any of these scholarships, students must achieve National Merit Finalist status by first qualifying as National Merit Semifinalists, by fulfilling several additional requirements as part of a detailed scholarship application, and by presenting a record of very high academic performance.
