National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) programs

Scholarships awarded through National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) programs are regarded as some of the highest academic honors attainable by U.S. high school students.

Last year NMSC awarded scholarships valued at over $51 million to more than 10,600 qualified students.

Although NMSC underwrites more than a quarter of the scholarships with its own funds, most awards are provided by hundreds of independent sponsor organizations.

  • Corporations sponsor scholarships for talented students.
  • Colleges and universities sponsor Merit Scholarship® awards for bright finalists who will attend their institutions.
