St. Olaf is proud to sponsor scholarships for National Merit Finalists, and National Hispanic Scholars. More than 1.5 million students enter the annual competition for these scholarships by taking the PSAT/NMSQT in their junior year. Less than 1% advance to finalist status and St. Olaf is pleased to recognize the academic talents of these students with a merit scholarship.
The St. Olaf National Merit Scholarship award is valued up to $2,000 per year.
St. Olaf’s academic rigor and motivated student body make it a good match for National Merit Scholars. St. Olaf routinely enrolls 20-40 Scholars in each class. A listing of how many Scholars enrolled at various colleges and universities this year is available on the National Merit Scholarship Corporation’s website – nationalmerit.org.
