If you’re a Hispanic/Latino junior and take the PSAT/NMSQT, you could be invited to apply for academic recognition as part of the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP). Every year, the NHRP recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the test. The College Board’s NHRP program is an academic honor that can be included on college applications. It’s not a scholarship, but colleges do use this program to identify academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students.
