All aspects of the program, including the selection of winners and the administration of their awards, will be conducted through the National Merit Scholarship Program by the nonprofit National Merit Scholarship Corp. Applications will be accepted by NMSC through March 31, 2019, and winners will be announced in spring 2020.
