Bolingbrook High School's Sandeep Bharadwaj named National Merit finalist

BOLINGBROOK — Bolingbrook High School senior Sandeep Bharadwaj is a National Merit Scholarship Program Finalist and could receive one of three types of Merit Scholarship awards.

Bharadwaj is now eligible for either a National Merit $2,500 Scholarship, a Corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship or College-sponsored Merit Scholarship.
 
Bharadwaj’s path to becoming a finalist started last year with the initial screening of 1.5 million students who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

He is the second ranking student in the Bolingbrook High School Class of 2013 and already holds a Bruce Fishkin Scholarship good for four years of undergraduate education at a higher institution of his choice.

The young man, who hopes to go into medicine, scored a perfect 800 on his SAT II Math Level 2 subject test as a junior and an almost perfect 790 on his SAT Chemistry subject test. He also scored perfect 5’s on all of his Advanced Placement tests.

Roughly 8,000 students nationwide are selected as National Merit Scholarship Program Finalists. All winners of Merit Scholarship awards are chosen from the Finalist group, based on their abilities, skills and accomplishments.
