Who’s Invited to Apply
The College Board reaches out to students who:
Take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of their junior year
Are at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino
Achieve the minimum required PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index score (this qualifying level may vary by state, region, and territory each year)
Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year
Good to Know
You need to identify as Hispanic/Latino on your PSAT/NMSQT answer sheet where it asks for race and ethnicity.
Only junior-year PSAT/NMSQT scores count. SAT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9 scores can’t be used.
NHRP's Definition of Hispanic/Latino
To be eligible, you must be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino. Hispanic/Latino is an ethnic category, not a racial category, so you can be of any race.
You must have ancestors from at least one of these countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, or Venezuela.
