The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships.
Of the 1.6 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest PSAT/NMSQT® Selection Index scores (calculated by doubling the sum of the Reading, Writing and Language, and Math Test scores) qualify for recognition in the National Merit® Scholarship Program. In September, these high scorers are notified through their schools that they have qualified as either a Commended Student or Semifinalist.
We are proud to announce the 2019-2020 nominees:
National Merit Commended Scholars:
National Merit Semi-Finalists:
National Merit Finalists:
