• College Board National Recognition Program 


    The College Board's four recognition programs—National African American Recognition Program, National Hispanic Recognition Program, National Indigenous Recognition Program and National Rural and Small Town Recognition Program—award academic honors to underrepresented students.

    Students who take eligible administrations of the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams will be considered for awards. Students must also identify as African American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Indigenous, or attend high school in a rural area or small town. This is not a scholarship program; however, students can include this academic honor in their college and scholarship applications. For more information on eligibility and how to apply, please visit the College Board's website.

    Some colleges offer significant scholarships to students with these recognitions. Please refer to this list of colleges who offer such scholarships.
