There are approximately 16,000 National Merit Semifinalists this year. These students are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and will compete for scholarships worth more than $34 million. Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. They will then be considered for a National Merit Scholarship award.
