    What is the difference between "merit" and "special"? What is "special"? For instance, the corporate scholarship my son applied for lists some merit and a lot more "special" scholarships.

    Thanks for clarifying.

    "Special" = non-NMF who get NM-related money.

    From page 7
    The rigorous review process that Semifinalists undergo to advance in the competition results in a talent pool of exceptional Finalists who compete for National Merit Scholarships. Other high-performing program participants, who are not Finalists but meet criteria specified by corporate and business sponsors, compete for other National Merit Program awards called Special Scholarships.
