National Merit Semifinalist and Commended Students
Notre Dame is proud to announce we have one Semifinalist for the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program and five Commended Students.
Molly Hart '20, is our semifinalist. More than 1.5 million students applied for the highly competitive scholarship and the semifinalists represent less than 1 percent of all high school seniors in the U.S. All of those chosen as semifinalists will go on to compete for the scholarships that will be offered next spring. More than 90 percent of the semifinalists will be named as finalists for the scholarship. Of those finalists, about half will win a scholarship to apply toward college tuition.
We also have five National Merit Commended Students. They include seniors Quentin Autry, Alexander Estes, Joseph Hoffman, Bridgit Hoyt, and Dora Krstic. They were recognized for their academic performance on the PSAT/NMSQT®. Commended Students are named on the basis of a Selection Index score, and are usually the top 50,000 students that scored the highest in the nation.
Congratulations to our Semifinalist and Commended Students!
