Corporate-Sponsored Merit Scholarship Winners Named

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) released the names of the first group of winners in the 60th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Approximately 1,000 distinguished high school seniors have won corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship awards financed by about 200 corporations, company foundations, and other business organizations. More than 700 high school seniors nationwide were named as National Merit Achievement Scholars.

Scholars were selected from students who advanced to the Finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship competition and met criteria of their scholarship sponsors. Corporate sponsors provide National Merit Scholarships for Finalists who are children of their employees, who are residents of communities the company serves, or who plan to pursue college majors or careers the sponsor wishes to encourage.
