The $2,500 scholarship awards are supported by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation’s own funds. There are 2,500 students from around the country who will receive similar recognition. Scholarship winners were chosen from approximately 15,000 finalists in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Finalists from each state were judged by a combination of accomplishments, skills and potential for success in rigorous college studies. They were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors.

This year’s competition for National Merit Scholarships began in October 2022 when high school juniors took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Last fall, the highest-scoring participants in each state were named semifinalists.

From the semifinalist group, over 15,000 students met the very high academic standards and other requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. By the conclusion of the 2024 program, more than 6,870 Finalists will have earned the “Merit Scholar” title and received a total of nearly $26 million in college scholarships.
