2 Paschal Students Earn National Merit Scholarships

Fort Worth, Texas - The 64th annual National Merit Scholarship Program includes two Fort Worth ISD students who have won corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship awards financed by a corporation.

The scholars were selected from students who advanced to the Finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship competition and meet criteria of their scholarship sponsors. Corporate sponsors provide National Merit Scholarships for Finalists who are children of their employees, residents of communities the company serves, or who plan to pursue college majors or careers the grantor wishes to encourage.

Most of these awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study

and provide annual stipends that range from $500 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 college or university. 

The FWISD students are: 

Kathleen M. Durkin – Paschal High School – National Merit Novartis Scholarship -

Probable career field:  Applied Mathematics 

Devon M. Nenon – Paschal High School – National Merit Novartis Scholarship

Probable career field: Neonatology
