Congratulations to MPCS senior G. Carisma, who is one of 32,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs! She has been designated as a College Board National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar, based on her remarkable academic achievements and outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in her classroom.
Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latino/a, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.
These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board’s Student Search Service.
