NVHS Student Wins National Merit Corporate Scholarship

Reported by on 4/21/21

National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) released the names of the first group of winners in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Nadun D. Gjapala, a senior at Neuqua Valley High School, was one of approximately 1,000 distinguished high school seniors to have won a corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship award financed by about 140 corporations, company foundations, and other business organizations.

Scholars were selected from students who advanced to the Finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship competition and met criteria of their scholarship sponsors. Corporate sponsors provide National Merit Scholarships for Finalists who are children of their employees, who are residents of communities the company serves, or who plan to pursue college majors or careers the sponsor wishes to encourage. Gjapala’s award was financed by Macy’s Inc.

Most of these awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study and provide annual stipends that range from $1,000 to $10,000 per year. Some provide a single payment between $2,500 and $5,000. Recipients can use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university of their choice.
