National Merit Award

Harvey Mudd College National Merit Scholarships are awarded to National Merit finalists who name Harvey Mudd as their first-choice school and who do not receive either a corporate-sponsored or a one-time National Merit Scholarship Corporation scholarship. Harvey Mudd National Merit Scholarships range from $1,000 to $2,000 per year depending on financial need.

Qualifying National Merit finalists who do not apply for or do not receive need-based financial assistance will be awarded the minimum award of $1,000 per year. You must be enrolled at least full time (12 units) to remain eligible to receive this award. Recipients of Harvey Mudd National Merit Scholarships who also receive the Harvey S. Mudd Merit Award or the President’s Scholar Award will have their award added to the amount of the Harvey Mudd National Merit Scholarship. However, need-based Harvey Mudd scholarship fund recipients will have their award reduced by the amount of the Harvey Mudd National Merit Scholarship. For example, if a student receives a Harvey Mudd National Merit Scholarship of $1,000, his or her Harvey Mudd need-based scholarship will be reduced by $1,000.
