Last week, The Episcopal School of Dallas recognized Katherine Cowser '21 and Jiaying Fu '21, who have been named semi-finalists in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. Approximately 16,000 high school seniors were named semifinalists, representing the top one percent of PSAT scores taken in 2019-20. Katherine and Jiaying will both go on to compete for the National Merit Scholarships.
These academically talented students have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 Merit Scholarship awards worth about $30 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.
Congratulations to these high-scoring students!
