This is the image for the news article titled 2018 National Merit $2500 Scholarship RecipientsOf the 12 National Merit $2500 Scholarship recipients from Idaho, five of them are from the Boise School District.

Nationwide, a total of 2,500 Merit Scholar designees were chosen from a talent pool of more than 15,000 outstanding Finalists in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.

National Merit $2500 Scholarship recipients are the Finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills and potential for success in rigorous college studies.  The number of recipients named in each state is proportional to the state's percentage of the nation's graduating high school seniors.

These Scholars were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors, who appraised a substantial amount of information submitted by both the Finalists and their high schools: the academic record, including difficulty level of subjects studied and grades earned; scores from two standardized tests; contributions and leadership in school and community activities; an essay written by the Finalist; and a recommendation written by a school office.

Congratulations to the following students from the Boise School District who were selected to receive 2018 National Merit $2500 Scholarships.
