MTA Excels On First Step Of The National Merit Competition

Six MTA students met the requirements to enter the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program: Yishai Eisenberg, CJ Glicksman Yair Gross, Ari Hagler, Tsahi Halyo, and Michael Kolber.

Of the 1.5 million students who entered the competition by taking the PSAT exam last fall, our six students are among the 50,000 highest scoring participants from across the country who now go on to the next stage of the program when, in the fall, 16,000 students will be named National Merit Scholarship semifinalists.

Those semifinalists will have the opportunity to continue in the competition for about 8,000 National Merit Scholarships to be offered in 2016. Good luck, guys!
