West Islip High School senior Asfar Chaudhry has been named a semifinalist in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program. High school juniors entered the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants.

The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state, according to the National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million that will be offered next spring.

National Merit Scholarship winners of 2023 will be announced in between April and July. These scholarship recipients will join nearly 368,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar title, according to the National Merit Scholarship Program.

This summer, several science research students from West Islip High School participated in Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Student Partnerships for Advanced Research and Knowledge summer program. The SPARK program enables high school students and their science teachers to become visiting researchers at BNL’s world-renowned scientific facilities.

Some of the students began writing proposals to conduct their research this coming year. Other students collaborated with scientists and staff at BNL and Stony Brook University to collect and analyze data at the National Synchrotron Light Source II. Participation in this collaboration will continue throughout the school year.

Congratulations to the following West Islip student-scientists for their participation: Rachel Crumlich, Liz Lam, Sabrina Cassese, Emma Fallon, Olessia Sabadakh and Asfar Chaudhry.
