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 PSAT/NMSQT®— a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.3 million entrants each year — and by meeting published program entry/participation requirements. In late September, more than two-thirds or about 34,000 of the approximately 50,000 high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT® receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise. These students' test scores on the PSAT/NMSQT rank them in the top 5 percent of students nationwide. In early September, about 16,000 students or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, will be notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. The National Merit Semifinalists rank among the top 1 percent of high school seniors nationwide. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must advance to Finalist standing in the competition by meeting high academic standards and all other requirements explained in the materials provided to each Semifinalist.
