  •  National Merit Scholarship Corporation Announces Semifinalists!

    On September 11, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 60th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.  We are very proud at Edison High School to recognize two of our students in the field of academia.   Our first is Andrei Moldoveanuwho is part of the academically talented high school seniors who will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million this spring.  In order 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 more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.

    Our second student is Eseiwi Aifuwa, who is a semifinalist in the 51th annual National Achievement Scholarship Program.  The National Achievement® Scholarship Program is an academic competition established in 1964 to provide recognition for outstanding Black American high school students.  Of the more than 160,000 high school, juniors who currently enter the National Achievement® Program each year, over 4,700 are honored.  Groups of about 3,100 Outstanding Participants are referred to regionally accredited U.S. colleges and universities for their potential for academic success. Smaller groups of about 1,600 are named Semifinalists and about 1,300 are expected to advance to the Finalist level.  All Achievement Scholar awardees will be selected from the Finalist group based on their abilities, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
