Twenty-one MCPS Students Win National Merit $2,500 Scholarships

May 11, 2018

Twenty-one Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) students from seven high schools have been awarded National Merit $2,500 Scholarships financed by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. 
 
The students are among 48 high school seniors in Maryland to be selected in the latest group of National Merit Scholarship Program recipients. The scholars were selected from a pool of more than 15,000 students, and will receive a one-time award of $2,500 for post-secondary education. 
 
The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) was established in 1955 to honor scholastically talented youth and encourage academic excellence at all levels of education. The scholarships are privately funded by NMSC, and are underwritten by more than 400 corporate and college sponsors. Recipients are judged to have the strongest record of accomplishments and greatest potential for success in college. 
 
On April 23, 14 MCPS seniors from five high schools were announced as recipients of corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarships, which are financed by corporations, company foundations, and other business organizations. Additional National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced later this year.
