National Merit Scholarship National Merit Finalist

The University of Houston will automatically award scholarship support to cover the cost of tuition, required fees, room, and board, including a $1000 undergraduate research stipend and a $2000 study abroad stipend, to National Merit Scholarship finalists who select the University of Houston as their first-choice institution in accordance with the rules and deadlines established by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).

The overall scholarship package includes any scholarship awarded by NMSC or any Corporate Sponsored Merit Scholarship. The university's contribution will be adjusted for the recipients of these types of awards. Also, the total room and board portion will be awarded only to those who choose to live on campus. Please Note: The National Merit Scholarship Finalist funding for freshman entering in Fall 2017 currently is under review.
