Beginning in March and continuing to mid-June, National Merit Scholarship Corporation will notify approximately 7,400 finalists that they have been selected to receive a Merit Scholarship award.
The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.5 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.
