Frisco ISD is proud to announce its Class of 2016 National Merit Finalists. Students achieved this standing through top academic performance, leadership, volunteerism and testing.
To become a Finalist in this prestigious national competition, students who are named National Merit Semifinalists, along with their high schools, must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the Semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment and honors and awards received. A Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay and earn SAT® scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.
About half of the National Merit Scholar Finalists nationally are awarded scholarships through this program. Thirty-two million dollars is awarded in scholarships each year.
Congratulations to the following Frisco ISD students who have been named National Merit Finalists:
