National Merit Program

Each year, the National Merit Scholarship Program offers college tuition assistance to high-performing seniors. More than 1.6 million students are eligible for the program each year, with only 50,000 of these students earning Commended status, and ⅓ of those students advancing to the Semifinalist round.
 
National African American Recognition Program

The College Board National African American Recognition Program Scholars celebrates the academic achievements of students from the African American and Black communities. Students are evaluated based on their PSAT/NMSQT test scores, and their academic record through their junior year is also considered.
