Beverly Hills High School students Alexandra Bakshian, Ariel Goldberg, Suhh Yeon Kim and Miles Kottler have been named finalists for the 2023 National Merit Scholarships and will be completing their applications with their school counselors and college counselors to advance to finalists.
The students entered the 2023 National Merit Scholarship program by taking the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in 2021, and now can continue for scholarship consideration and National Merit Finalist standing. They are among the roughly 16,000 students receiving National Merit semifinalist standing, a number that represents less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors.
Of the 16,000 semifinalists, more than 15,000 are expected to advance to the finalist level in February. Participating students can win $2,500 National Merit Scholarships, as well as 950 corporate-sponsored merit scholarship awards provided by approximately 180 corporations and business organizations.
Additionally, about 160 colleges and universities are expected to finance 3,800 college-sponsored merit scholarship awards.
“On behalf of Beverly Hills High School and the Beverly Hills Unified School District, we congratulate these students for their outstanding academic achievement and intellect,” read a statement from the BHUSD. “BHHS looks forward to supporting and celebrating these students as they continue their pursuit of higher education.”
