Senior named semifinalist in National Merit Scholarship competition

September 13, 2017

Today, officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation [NMSC] announced the names of approximately 16,000 semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Among them is Mundelein High School senior, Nathan Cartland.

These high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 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 of the competition. About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and about half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.

National Merit Scholarship winners of 2018 will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April and concluding in July. These scholarship recipients will join more than 330,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar title.
