Congratulations MHS Class of 2022 National Merit Siemens Scholarship Recipient

Mr. John P. Pascale, Principal of the Mahwah High School, is proud to announce that a member of the Class of 2022 has been selected as a winner of the National Merit Siemens Scholarship.  Ishita Jain is the recipient of this honor.


From approximately 1.6 million students who entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program, only about 16,000 were named Semifinalists.  They were designated on a state representational basis, in proportion to each state’s percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors.


In order to advance in the competition and be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, a Semifinalist had to become a Finalist by fulfilling several requirements that included submitting a detailed scholarship application and presenting a record of very high academic performance.  All winners of about 7,500 National Merit Scholarships are being chosen from the group of approximately 15,000 distinguished Finalists.


Congratulations to Ishita on this wonderful achievement.
