September 10, 2014
Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) has 133 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists in the 2015 competition. The semifinalists will compete nationally for scholarships that will be announced in the spring. The competition is sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. 

The MCPS semifinalists come from 13 high schools: Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Montgomery Blair, Winston Churchill, Clarksburg, Walter Johnson, Richard Montgomery, Poolesville, Quince Orchard, Sherwood, Springbrook, Walt Whitman, Thomas S. Wootton and Wheaton high schools.

The schools with most finalists are Richard Montgomery (34), Montgomery Blair (32), and Thomas S. Wootton (21) high schools.

Semifinalists from MCPS were selected from among high school juniors who were top scorers on the 2013 PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Approximately 16,000 semifinalists across the nation will be considered for advancement to the finalist stage of the competition.

Finalists will be considered for $2,500 National Merit scholarships, plus additional corporate-sponsored and college/university-sponsored scholarships. That will be announced later in the school year.
