The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) is a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance. The corporation was established in 1955 to conduct the National Merit Scholarship Program, an annual academic competition for recognition and scholarships that is open to all U.S. high school students who meet published entry requirements. The semi-finalists named in each year’s Merit Scholarship competition show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies. Those who meet requirements to advance to the finalist level compete for Merit Scholarship awards.
