Around 8,000 students will win a ,500 scholarship.
If you receive an invitation, you will need to submit a scholarship application by early October.
The process isn’t so different than applying to college.
To become a finalist, the semifinalist and his or her high school must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.
A semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.
Our expert subject tutors and personalized lesson plans help students earn better grades and become happier, more confident students.
Whether you're looking for a math tutor, or any other type of academic tutoring, Study Point can help.
Finalists who don’t win the National Merit Scholarship or a Corporate-Sponsored Scholarship still have a chance to win a College-Sponsored scholarship.
College-sponsored scholarships are usually between 0-00. To win, students need to mark one of the sponsor colleges as their first choice college on their application.
You need to send your academic record, a recommendation letter from your school principal, and an essay.
Your application should show academic commitment, community involvement, and involvement with extracurricular activities.
