Students qualify for the National Merit program by earning top scores on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The highest scoring entrants from each state are named semifinalists and go on to compete for thousands of dollars in scholarship money.

To be considered for a National Merit Scholarship, semifinalists must advance to finalist standing in the competition by completing the application process, obtaining letters of recommendation, and demonstrating high academic performance.

Finalists will be named in February.
