The third National Merit Scholar announcement in 2013 by National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) was recently held, where NMSC named recipients of corporate-sponsored awards in April and winners of National Merit $2,500 Scholarships. Additional recipients of college-sponsored awards will be announced on July 15.
Recipients included Rabia Aslam of Syosset, with a probable career in medicine, who received the National Merit University of Oklahoma Scholarship; and Rebekah D. Sugarman of Syosset, also with a probable career in medicine, who received the National Merit University of Chicago Scholarship.
Today, National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced approximately 2,500 winners of National Merit Scholarships financed by U.S. colleges and universities. Officials of each sponsor college selected their scholarship winners from among the finalists in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program who plan to attend their institution.
These awards provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship. An additional group of scholars will be announced in July, bringing the total number of college-sponsored Merit Scholarship recipients in the 2013 competition to approximately 4,500.
This year, 190 higher education institutions are underwriting Merit Scholarship awards through the National Merit Scholarship Program. Sponsor colleges and universities include 113 private and 77 public institutions located in 44 states and the District of Columbia.
College-sponsored Merit Scholarship winners announced today are a part of the distinguished group of about 8,000 high school seniors who will receive National Merit Scholarships for college undergraduate study worth over $35 million. Earlier this spring, NMSC announced winners of corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards and National Merit $2,500 Scholarships.
