About the Siemens Merit Scholarship

The NMSC is an independent, not for profit organization. Their purpose is to provide a system to identify and honor exceptional high school students for corporations, foundations and other organizations that wish to sponsor college undergraduate scholarships.

All phases of the Siemens Merit Scholarship program including the selection of the winners and payment of the scholarship stipends are handled for the Siemens Foundation by the National Merit Corporation. 



Each Siemens Merit Scholarship stipend is $4,000 ($1,000 per year). This stipend is distributed each year for up to four years of college undergraduate study or until baccalaureate degree requirements are completed, whichever comes first. The winners' annual stipend will not be affected by other scholarship aid or by approved change in college.
