Approximately 1,000 distinguished high school seniors won corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship awards financed by about 136 corporations, company foundations, and other business organizations. The awards are financed by about 140 companies that typically employ the parent or guardian of a recipient.

Scholars were selected from students who advanced to the Finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship competition and met the criteria of their scholarship sponsors. Corporate sponsors provide National Merit Scholarships for Finalists who are children of their employees, who are residents of communities the company serves, or who plan to pursue college majors or careers the sponsor wishes to encourage.
