National Hispanic Award Process?

Hey guys, I've heard about the National Hispanic Award before, but I'm not sure what it is or how to apply. Can someone give me the rundown on what it entails? Appreciate the help!

Hey there! The National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) is an academic honor that recognizes outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school juniors who have achieved a high PSAT/NMSQT score and maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.

This recognition is awarded by College Board, and although it doesn't come with a scholarship, it can be a great addition to your college applications and can help you stand out to admissions officers.

To be eligible for the NHRP, you must:

1. Take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of your junior year.

2. Be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino on your PSAT/NMSQT.

3. Achieve the minimum required score on the PSAT/NMSQT. This score varies each year and can be different based on your state of residence.

4. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of your junior year.

The great thing about this program is that there's no application process. College Board identifies students based on their PSAT/NMSQT scores and school records. Around April of your junior year, College Board will start notifying eligible students about the recognition. You'll need to complete an online form by the deadline they provide, confirming your Hispanic/Latino heritage.

Once you're recognized, you can list this honor on your college applications, and College Board will also send a list of recognized students to colleges and universities, which can increase your visibility to those institutions.

Good luck, and I hope this helps clarify the National Hispanic Recognition Program for you!
