The national merit scholarship program is a United States, academic scholarship competition. Each year the NMSC conducts a competition that is open to all students who meet the entry requirements. The highest performers are named national merit scholars.
 
Each year 1.6 million students from around 22,000 high schools. Enter this competition when they take the PSAT/MNSQT. Scholarship winners represent less than one percent of the initial pool of student entrance.
