National Merit Scholarship Corp., Evanston, IL.
This report discusses the National Merit Scholarship Program (NMSP) and the National Achievement Scholarship Program (NASP) for 1968-69 in terms of student participation, awards made, and sponsor participation. Two types of Merit scholarships were awarded: scholarships renewable for up to 4 years of college, which are underwritten by sponsors in the Merit Program, and one-time non-renewable $1,000 scholarships financed by both NMSC and sponsors. The NASP is designed for outstanding black students of whom 233 were awarded a $1,000 scholarship and 121 were awarded renewable scholarships. The NASP also supports research, including a study of marital plans and educational aspirations of women Scholars and career choices of Negroes and other youth. The report also lists the sponsors of the NMSP programs, the number of participating secondary schools and students by state in 1968-69, the colleges from which Merit and Achievement Scholars have been graduated and present college enrollment of these scholars for 1969-70, and a summary of college majors of the Scholars and semifinalists in the 1969 programs. A financial statement concludes the report. (AF)
