WESTBOROUGH – Kyran Trivedi, a senior at Westborough High School, has been selected as a candidate for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.

Trivedi, who will attend Northwestern University this fall, was chosen based on her SAT score of 1590.

If selected, she will receive an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., to meet the president and tour the White House.

The program was established in 1964, by executive order of the president, to recognize and honor some of the nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. 

In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts. 

In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. 

Each year, up to 161 students are named as presidential scholars, one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students.

Correction: An earlier version of this article stated that Kyran Trivedi had been named a presidential scholar. She is a candidate.
