About National Merit Scholarship Program

Approximately, 16,000 students are notified that they have qualified as a Semifinalist in the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. To be considered for a National Merit® Scholarship, Semifinalists must advance to Finalist standing in the competition. Finalists have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships that will be offered next spring. Semifinalists will be notified in February 2022 if they are selected as Finalists. 

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).
