Four Columbus School for Girls Students Recognized by 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Four students at Columbus School for Girls (CSG) have been recognized by the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.

The CSG Seniors are:

  • Eva House, Columbus- National Merit Semifinalist  

  • Alison Maniace, Columbus - National Merit Commended Student

  • Sophia Rodriguez, Powell - National Merit Commended Student

  • Elizabeth Tierney, Upper Arlington - National Merit Commended Student

About 1.6 million students in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program, and 16,000 reached the Semifinalist stage. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. Approximately 15,000 are expected to advance to the Finalist level and compete for scholarships that will be awarded on a state-representational level. Finalists will be notified in February.

About 34,000 of the approximately 50,000 high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT® receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise across the nation. Commended Students are named on the basis of a nationally applied Selection Index score that may vary from year to year and is typically below the level required for participants to be named Semifinalists in their respective states. Although Commended Students do not continue in the competition for National Merit® Scholarships, some of these students do become candidates for Special Scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses. Commended Students placed among the top 5% of more than 1.6 million students who took the 2017 test.
