National Merit Scholarship Banner ImageFour Gateway High and one Celebration High academically-talented students in Osceola County have been named as Semifinalists in the 64th annual 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program, and have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered in the spring:
--David Movsisyan – Celebration High
--Brandon Ceme – Gateway High
--Brian Lin – Gateway High
--Angel Martinez Acevedo – Gateway High
--Khadija Zaidi – Gateway High
 
The nationwide pool of Semifinalists represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year, and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements. All winners of Merit Scholarship® awards are chosen from the Finalist group based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments, without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference.
 
Beginning in April and continuing to July, students will be selected to receive Merit Scholarship awards of three types: National Merit $2,500 Scholarships, Corporate-Sponsored Merit Scholarships awards, and College-Sponsored Merit Scholarship Awards.
