Coca-Cola Scholar Semifinalists

Great Neck South High School seniors Andersen Gu and Noah Sheidlower have
been named Semifinalists in the 2019 Coca-Cola Scholars Program, one of the largest
corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship programs in the nation. This year’s
program will award 150 college scholarships worth $20,000.


Approximately 1,900 high school seniors were selected as Semifinalists from a
pool of 95,715 applicants from across the country, based on their academic excellence,
leadership, and service in school and community activities.


Semifinalists are required to complete a second application that includes
additional information on their academic and volunteer work, multiple essays, and
academic recommendations from school leaders. After a review of these applications,
250 Semifinalists will advance as Regional Finalists, with 150 becoming Coca-Cola
Scholars.
