43 Tuscon Seniors On Merit Scholar List

The National Metrit Scholar program has been one of the more prestigious programs in the country which provides scholarship money to America’s best and brightest high-school students who wish to matriculate to a college or university.

In the spring of 2018, about 7,500 American high-school seniors will be awarded scholarships with a total value of about $32 million, and more than 40 Tucson students were selected as semi-finalists for these prestigious awards. About nine in ten of the semi-finalists will become finalists, and about half of those will earn the scholarships and become Merit Scholars.
