National Merit® Scholars

The National Merit® Scholarship Program gives high school students recognition and scholarships for exemplary performance on the PSAT/NMSQT® test administered each fall at schools across the United States.  Approximately 1.6 million students take the PSAT/NMSQT® annually, with only some 50,000 receiving recognition in the National Merit® Scholarship Program.
