Each year, the National Hispanic Recognition Program honors more than 5,000 academically outstanding students from more than 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT®. Eligible students must be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino, which is based on the program’s definition and achieve a minimum PSAT/NMSQT score for their region.

The National Hispanic Recognition Program is an academic honor that can be included in college applications.
