The National Merit Scholarship Corporation is an independent not-for-profit organization that conducts privately financed annual competitions for recognition and college undergraduate scholarships through two programs - the National Merit Scholarship Program and the National Achievement Scholarship Program. Of the 1.3 million entrants, some 50,000 high school students with the highest Preliminary SAT scores will qualify for National Merit Scholarship Program recognition. The top scorers earn National Merit Semifinalist status, followed by National Merit Commended status. In addition, African American students compete in the National Achievement Scholarship Program, and academically outstanding students of Hispanic origin are recognized through the National Hispanic Recognition Program.
