The College Board National Recognition Programs gives underrepresented students the
opportunity to be awarded for their academic honors, allowing them to connect with a variety of universities across the country.
Students who may be eligible for these programs must have taken the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and full under any of the following:
African American/Black, Hispanic or Latinx, Indigenous, or attend school in a rural area or small town.
Eligibility also differs in what grade the student is currently in. Sophomores must take the
PSAT/NMSQT in the fall (by October) and score in the top 10% in their state, get a score of 3 or
higher on an AP exam (by May of freshman or sophomore year), or have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
Juniors must have taken the PSAT 10 in the spring of their sophomore year and scored in the
top 10% of their state, taken the PSAT/NMSQT in the fall (by October) of junior year and score

year), or have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
By April 16, College Board should send out invites to apply for eligible students. Students who have been invited previously have until May 28th to apply for any National Recognition Programs. All notifications from this program will be sent via email. The benefit of this program includes the option to include academic honors under any college or scholarship application the student may be applying to. If any student is interested in this program they should sign up for the College Board Student Service Search. This is a program that allows students to connect with universities and scholarship programs by making the students who are awarded easier to find and reach.
