Approximately 16,000 Semifinalists were chosen from the highest scorers in each state for the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

Approximately 95% of the Semifinalists will attain Finalist standing.
To become a Finalist, the Semifinalists and their high school must submit a detailed scholarship application, which includes information about the students' academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.
