Sachem High School East senior Siddharth Sheth was named a semifinalist in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Sheth was among the approximately 16,000 academically talented high school students from across the nation to be named a semifinalist. High school juniors entered the scholarship program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Semifinalists represent less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors, including the highest-scoring entrants in each state.

The program’s semifinalists have the opportunity to advance in the competition to win scholarships worth nearly $28 million in total. About 95% of semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing after submitting a detailed scholarship application. Finalists are expected to be announced in February.

The district congratulates Sheth on this outstanding accomplishment and wishes him the best as he advances in the competition.
