These three students will now move on to the final phase of this program, where approximately 7,500 merit scholarship winners will be chosen and awarded scholarship offers. 

Approximately 1.6 million high school students enter the National Merit Program each year by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). That number was narrowed down to approximately 15,000 finalists. National Merit Scholarship winners of 2019 will be announced beginning in April.
