High School students who meet published program entry and participation requirements enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) at the specified time in the high school program, usually as juniors.

 

Each year's PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying test designated for entry to a particular year's competition. For example, the 2020 PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying test for entry to the competition for scholarships to be awarded in 2022.

You can learn more about the National Merit Scholarship Program here, https://www.nationalmerit.org/s/1758/start.aspx?gid=2&pgid=61.

 

National Merit finalists are generally announced in February with winners announced in March.

Best of luck West Ada students!
