Congratulations Emily Madhavapallil,Winner of National Merit College Sponsored Scholarship

Emily Madhavapallil, daughter of Sunil and Biji Madhavapallil, from Tampa has been named a part of the distinguished group of about 7,500 high school seniors who will receive National Merit Scholarships for college undergraduate study worth nearly $28 million. In order to receive this award, high school juniors from around the nation were first required to obtain a PSAT score in the top 1% of their state from which Semifinalist status was achieved. To be considered a National Merit Scholar, Semifinalists were asked to complete a detailed scholarship application, which included writing an essay and providing information about extracurricular activities, awards, and leadership positions. Semifinalists also had to have an outstanding academic record, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, and earn SAT or ACT scores that confirmed their qualifying test performance.

Emily received a perfect ACT composite score, a 4.0 unweighted GPA, and graduated top 10 from the Strawberry Crest High School International Baccalaureate Program. She plans to continue her education at the University of Florida majoring in Biology on a Pre-Med track and was awarded the UF Presidential Scholarship and the Florida state Benaquisto Scholarship. Emily aspires to follow in the footsteps of her two older siblings, Lindsey and Kevin, and become a physician to serve the community in the future.
