Congratulations to Brianna Bryant for advancing to be named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist.
Every year around 1.6 million students apply for the scholarship. Only one percent are named finalists, making this a big honor and accomplishment for Brianna.
She will be eligible to win one of three types of scholarships. The National Merit Scholarship is a $2,500 single-payment offered on a state-representational basis. Winners are selected without consideration of family financial circumstances, college choice, or major and career plans. Corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarships are designated by the sponsor and may either be renewable for four years of undergraduate study or one-time awards. College-sponsored Merit Scholarships are renewable for up to four years of study and are awarded by sponsor colleges to students who have been accepted and have that school as their first choice.
Students who qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program are honored for showing exceptional academic ability. National Merit Scholarship winners will be selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in college. Winners will be announced in Spring 2020.
