National Merit Scholarship
The National Merit Scholarship is an eight-semester, full LDS tuition award sponsored by BYU for a number of the new incoming freshman students who qualify as finalists in the National Merit competition. To be considered for this scholarship, finalists must inform National Merit Corporation that BYU is their first-choice university. National Merit Corporation will then forward necessary materials to BYU. Students must meet the requirements for a BYU multi-year scholarship but because funds are limited, finalists are not guaranteed a BYU-sponsored National Merit Scholarship.
