Senior Named Semifinalist in National Merit Scholarship Corporation Program

Senior Named Semifinalist in National Merit Scholarship Corporation Program

Longwood High School is pleased to share that senior Gregory Cohen has been named a semifinalist for the 2024 National Merit Scholarship program.

Gregory is one of only 6,000 semifinalists from across the nation who were named by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Semifinalists can continue in the competition for some 7,140 National Merit Scholarships – worth nearly $28 million – that will be offered next spring. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. 

Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to become a finalist for the competition, including a detailed scholarship application that provides information about their academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. 

Congratulations to Gregory!
