Congratulations to the 44 BVSD students named as 2013 National Merit Scholarship Finalists

Boulder Valley School District is proud to announce that 44 of our students are 2013 National Merit Finalists.

More than one million juniors in the nation took the qualifying exam, PSAT, in the fall of their junior year. Only 15,000 were selected to become National Merit Finalists. All National Merit Finalists have an opportunity to be awarded a scholarship of $2,500 and, depending upon the sponsoring corporation, finalists may receive up to a full scholarship. Additionally, many colleges and universities actively recruit National Merit Finalists for their schools by offering them additional scholarships.
