Over 1.6 million students in more than 22,000 high schools across the country entered the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2017 PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test), also known as NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test). These students are a part of the less than 1 percent of high school students who are now eligible to compete for 7,500 merit scholarships, sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).
