Welcome to the Siemens Scholarship Program

Students meet program participation requirements based on the year the student will leave high school and enter college.

The 2013 Siemens Scholarship Program is currently open to entrants who will finish high school and enter college in 2013.

How does a student enter the 2013 Siemens Scholarship Program?A 2013 Siemens Scholarship Program Entry Form must be completed and submitted by April 1, 2012. The Entry Form for the 2013 competition is provided in Entry Step 3 of the Siemens Scholarship Program Online Entry Form.(Accessing the Scholarship Program Entry Form)The student must also take the PSAT/NMSQT in the fall of 2011, on the date their school chooses for the administration -- either Wednesday, October 12 or Saturday, October 15, 2011.


Important information regarding the PSAT/NMSQT:The 2011 PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying test to enter the 2013 competition. Scores from prior PSAT/NMSQT administrations (2010 or earlier) cannot be used for participation in the 2013 program. The 2011 PSAT/NMSQT will be administered on Wednesday, October 12 or Saturday, October 15, 2011. The 2013 Siemens Scholarship Program Entry Form can be submitted prior to the student taking the October 2011 PSAT/NMSQT and/or receiving his/her official score report. As a sponsor of the examination, NMSC receives all 2011 PSAT/NMSQT scores and information students provide on their answer sheets. Therefore, students do not need to report their PSAT/NMSQT scores to NMSC. For more information about the PSAT/NMSQT or the National Merit Scholarship Program, visit NMSC's Web site at www.nationalmerit.org


What if my student misses the exam?A student who does not take the 2011 PSAT/NMSQT because of illness, an emergency, or other extenuating circumstances (but meets all other participation requirements) may still be able to enter the 2013 competition.
