Congratulations to our 2021 National Merit Semifinalists! 

This year 17 Tempe Union students from Corona del Sol, Desert Vista, McClintock and Mountain Pointe high schools are in the running for the the National Merit Scholarship program. Students are selected for this program based on their PSAT scores, which are amongst the top in the state of Arizona. 

To be considered for the National Merit Scholarship, Semifinalists must complete an application. Winners will be chosen from the Finalist group based on their abilities, skills, and academic accomplishments.
