“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” said a spokesperson for National Merit. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.”

“We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for academic excellence through this program. Although they will not continue in the 2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, some of these students may become candidates for special scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses.

Commended Students place among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
