Students were chosen after taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

The semifinalists are among the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent less than 1% of high school seniors in the U.S.

To become a National Merit Scholar Finalist, the semifinalist and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, have an outstanding academic record, participate in school and community activities, display leadership, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay and earn a qualifying SAT or ACT score.

Finalists will be named in February.

Approximately half of the finalists will become National Merit Scholarship winners.

The winners will be announced starting in April.
