"The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.
Student Entry Requirements

The student's responses to items on the PSAT/NMSQT answer sheet that are specific to NMSC program entry determine whether the individual meets requirements to participate in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Click here to see NMSC program entry items on the PSAT/NMSQT answer sheet. Score reports provided for test takers and their schools indicate whether the student meets program entry requirements. A school official or the student should report immediately to NMSC any error or change in reported information that may affect participation.
Of the 1.6 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest PSAT/NMSQT® Selection Index scores (calculated by doubling the sum of the Reading, Writing and Language, and Math Test scores) qualify for recognition in the National Merit® Scholarship Program. In September, these high scorers are notified through their schools that they have qualified as either a Commended Student or Semifinalist..."

"The Nancy Ann and Ray L. Hunt Leadership Scholars Program allows students to combine learning and leadership. It enables outstanding student leaders from all walks of life to come to SMU—students whose leadership gifts will have a significant impact on our SMU community and, eventually, on the quality of our society.
The Hunt Leadership Scholars award is for full SMU tuition and fees, less the amount of resident tuition and fees at the leading public school of the student’s state of residency. If eligible, a student can be awarded need-based aid in addition to the Hunt Scholarship. In addition, because leaders of the 21st century will need to have a global vision in any area of leadership, the award also underwrites tuition and transportation to one of SMU’s study abroad programs.
In addition, Hunt Leadership Scholars have unusual opportunities to learn from leaders. The Scholars have wide access to the Tate Lectures Series, one of the premiere public lecture series in the country. The Hunt Scholars Program hosts a number of forums and discussions with leaders from many arenas. Finally, Hunt Scholars are expected to become leaders and change agents within the SMU community."
Must demonstrate extraordinary leadership
-Must submit the Hunt Essay and a completed first-year application for admission to SMU
-Rank in top 25% of graduating class
-Have a composite SAT 1360 (Math and Critical Reading) or an ACT score of 29
-Complete a strong college preparatory curriculum, typically including AP courses, IB courses, and honors classes

College of Music Scholarships
"The College of Music awards competitive music scholarships based on talent and professional promise. When you apply for admission to the College, your application and audition also serves as the application for music scholarships. If you are an out-of-state student and you are awarded a competitive scholarship of $1,000 or more during the fall (or fall plus spring), you are able to attend UNT at the resident tuition rate for that academic year - including the summer term. This is true for both music awards and the academic awards mentioned above.Music scholarship recipients and the amount of awards are determined by faculty committees established from within the appropriate areas. Program needs are also considered in determining scholarship awards. Assuming all scholarship obligations are met each year, scholarships may be held for up to a total of four years for undergraduate study, two years for master’s level study, two years for the completion of a graduate artist certificate, or three years for doctoral study. Of course, award renewal is subject to the availability of funding. The college currently distributes over $900,000 in music scholarships to students each year.
If you receive a performance scholarship, you are required to participate in appropriate performing ensembles each long semester, and must agree to accept assignment by the College of Music in no more than two performance laboratory ensembles each semester. If you receive a non-performance music scholarship, you are required to enroll in appropriate courses as determined by your area.

The Ruskin School of Art offers a three-year studio-based BFA course in which students work alongside each other in collaboratively organised studios. Whereas many fine art courses run in an environment devoted exclusively to art and design, Ruskin students, as members of a collegiate university, have the advantage of contact with their contemporaries on all of Oxford’s other courses.
The Ruskin course aims to develop strong independent points of view and a mature grasp of the range of critical debate surrounding contemporary art and its many international histories. Oxford’s short terms, coupled with the ambitious atmosphere at the Ruskin, suit highly motivated and resourceful students with a good sense of how to organise their time both in and out of Oxford.
The first year of the course is structured to introduce students to each other, to the resources of the school and to the staff involved in teaching and running the Ruskin. Students will familiarise themselves with their fellow students’ work, take part in group criticism and engage in intensive dialogue with tutors and visiting artists.
The intimate working environment of the school, arranged in two buildings, allows art history, theory and criticism to be treated as integral to the development of studio work. The Ruskin also enjoys a strong and constructive relationship with Modern Art Oxford (an exciting and influential contemporary art space) and students have full access to the many exceptional University libraries and museums, including the Ashmolean.

Vision and Mission
"Engineering at Notre Dame combines technical inquiry with a creative bent (novel methods of using and producing materials, components, devices, and systems) to develop innovations that can improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for all persons. Consistent with the University’s Catholic mission and heritage, the College of Engineering’s mission is founded on the principle that the creation and transfer of knowledge should reflect a profound and complete respect for the dignity of all persons and for the greater common good of humanity. To appropriate the words of the University’s founder, Rev. Edward A. Sorin, C.S.C., the college must be, first and foremost, a force for good in the world.
To that end, the college will continue to engage in transformational research in its core competencies — energy, biomedical/bioengineering, environmental science/engineering, and national/personal security — as they address the important needs of humanity, while inspiring students of all levels to scholarship and service. It will also continue to develop its expertise in electronic materials and devices, wireless and information systems, natural hazard mitigation, flow physics and control, geochemistry and geosciences, hydrology, and computational science and engineering, translating research outcomes into commercial ventures as possible, so that the efforts of Notre Dame engineering researchers produce the greatest good for society."
Did You Know?
"Engineering has been offered at the University since 1873, when Notre Dame became the first Catholic university in the country to have a school of engineering. In fact, Notre Dame boasts a long history of engineering developments in a variety of fields … from the construction of the first hand-driven wind tunnel in America (aerospace) and the successful transmission of one of the first wireless messages (communications) in the country to the discovery of a new class of actinyl peroxide compounds (energy) and demonstration of magnetic logic (computing).
When the College of Engineering was officially founded in 1920, most of the students were pursuing civil engineering, due to the nation’s need for surveyors and designers of roads, bridges, and railroads. Today, graduate and undergraduate students continue to explore a wide variety of fields through the five departments housed within the college as they search for ways to address some of society’s most pressing needs."
The College of Engineering offers curricula leading to the following degrees and concentrations. Like each degree program, concentrations consist of specific course requirements, which are available from individual departments. All concentrations are achievable without adding to degree requirements.
