Villanova, Rosemont and Bryn Mawr residents are amongst Episcopal Academy’s 10 National Merit semifinalists this year.
Rohan Gulati, of Villanova, Daniel Schlaff, of Bryn Mawr and Stacey Sloate, of Rosemont are among some 15,000 semifinalists from across the country now designated as finalists. These students will continue in the competition for some 8,300 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million.
From March through mid-June, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation will announce those finalists who have been selected to receive one of three Merit Scholarship® awards. They are National Merit® $2,500 scholarships, corporate-sponsored merit scholarship awards, and college-sponsored merit scholarship awards. More than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
NMSC, a not-for-profit corporation that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 440 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.
