Webb students among National Merit Scholarship finalists
The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently recognized six students from The Webb Schools’ class of 2023 as National Merit Scholarship finalists due to their performances on the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test and Preliminary SAT.
The students are Nancy Lin and Jasmin Wan from Vivian Webb School and Jeffrey Baek, Stanley Jian, Austin Ra and Richard Wu from Webb School of California. They were among 1.5 million students who entered the competition in fall 2021.
The organization first selected 50,000 students, then narrowing that list down to 16,000 semi-finalists in fall 2022. From there, 15,000 students were selected as finalists.
The students now will be considered for nearly $28 million in scholarships from corporations, NMSC and colleges, which will be awarded to about 7,250 students in spring and summer.
