Congratulations to Lucien Mallett, Semifinalist in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship
Program. This academically talented high school senior has an opportunity to continue in the
competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million that will
be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill
several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of
the Finalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
