Saint Stanislaus is proud to announce that senior Leyton Janowsky has been selected as winner of the National Merit Solvay Scholarship. The 2,500 National Merit Scholarships are the awards for which every Finalist, of which Leyton is one, is considered. From approximately 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program, only about 16,000 were named Semifinalists. 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 very high record of academic performance. All winners of about 7,500 National Merit Scholarships are being chosen from the group of 15,000 distinguished Finalists.
