BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — The accolades continue for a homeless New York teen who's a semifinalist in a prestigious national science contest.

Brentwood High School senior Samantha Garvey will appear in a broadcast of "Ellen" airing Thursday, which airs in Canada on CTV.

NBC New York television says talk show host Ellen DeGeneres will present the 18-year-old with a $50,000 scholarship from AT&T to the college of her choice.

Since Garvey's story gained national attention, her family has been offered a home by Long Island officials. It's now being renovated.

She's already been invited to watch President Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Jan. 24 as a guest of U.S. Rep. Steve Israel of Long Island.

Last week, Garvey was named one of 300 semifinalists in the Intel science contest. She hopes to be a marine biologist.
