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.
