National Merit $2500 Scholarship Winners

(Evanston, Illinois) Today, National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced


this years National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners. The 2,500 Merit Scholar designees were
chosen from a talent pool of more than 15,000 outstanding Finalists in the 2017 National Merit
Scholarship Program.

National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners are the Finalists in each state judged to have
the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college
studies. The number of winners named in each state is proportional to the states percentage of the
nations graduating high school seniors.

These Scholars were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high
school counselors, who appraised a substantial amount of information submitted by both the
Finalists and their high schools: the academic record, including difficulty level of subjects studied
and grades earned; scores from two standardized tests; contributions and leadership in school and
community activities; an essay written by the Finalist; and a recommendation written by a high
school official.

National Merit $2500 Scholarship Winners

NMSC finances most of these single-payment National Merit $2500 Scholarships.


Corporations and company foundations that sponsor awards through NMSC also help underwrite
these scholarships with grants they provide in lieu of paying administrative fees. Scholars may
use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university.
2017 National Merit Scholarship Competition
This years National Merit Scholarship Program began in October 2015 when over
1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screen of program
entrants. Last fall, the highest-scoring participants in each state, representing less than one percent
of the nations high school seniors, were named Semifinalists on a state-representational basis.
Only these 16,000 Semifinalists had an opportunity to continue in the competition.

From the Semifinalist group, some 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 2017 program, about 7,500 Finalists will have earned the Merit Scholar title and received a
total of over $32 million in college scholarships.

NMSC, a not-for-profit corporation that operates without government assistance, was


founded in 1955 specifically to conduct the National Merit Scholarship Program. The majority
of scholarships offered each year are underwritten by approximately 420 independent corporate
and college sponsors that share NMSCs goals of honoring scholastically talented youth and
encouraging academic excellence at all levels of education.

CAUTION: Any attempt to compare high schools on the basis of numbers of Merit
Scholarship winners will lead to erroneous and unsound conclusions. The National Merit
Scholarship Program honors individual students who show exceptional academic ability and
potential for success in rigorous college studies. The program does not measure the quality or
effectiveness of education within a school, system, or state.

National Merit, Merit Scholarship, Merit Scholar, and the corporate Lamp of Learning logo are federally registered service
marks of National Merit Scholarship Corporation. PSAT/NMSQT is a registered trademark of National Merit Scholarship Corporation and
