National Hispanic Recognition Program Class of 2022

Yep got email and came from programadmin@nationalrecognitionprogram.org I checked the new domain and check it out. https://www.nationalrecognitionprogram.org looks very legit. We would not all have gotten it if it was not legit. Congrats everyone!!!

My D also received an email. :wink:

Congrats to you guys! My son received the email. We are in Texas.

I sent them an email and they responded with the criteria for their program. Didn’t answer my of specific questions so not helpful at all… I guess we just need to keep an eye for emails from them.

My daughter scored 1210 on her PSAT (which is in top 91 percentile nationally) and is a 4.0 student. Does she have a shot at the NHRP?

Is your daughter’s score in the 90th percentile for your state?

The eligibility criteria are listed at National Recognition Program: Student

I’ve been googling like a madwoman for information on what Arizona’s scores are. Any ideas where I can find this?

Arizona is typically very high. Most the qualifying scores are between 1280-1380, but there was a forum from last year that the Arizona cutoff was 1360.

@EsAhoraDeComer I linked the post that @abbas69 is referring to at College Board National Recognition Program (includes former National Hispanic Recognition Program) Class of 2022 - Specialty College Admissions Topics / Hispanic Students - College Confidential Forums - Admissions Discussions and Threads

Thanks for the info! I wonder if the threshold might be lower this year because of fewer kids taking the PSAT due to Covid.

Did your daughter meet the other assessment criteria they are using now? like for example, did she get 3 or above in at least two AP tests since 9th grade? I have no idea what the PSAT cutoff on Texas is but I know my son meets the AP criteria so he should qualify, but we haven’t got an email (?). He also has above 3.5 GPA and is Hispanic and therefore meets the other criteria… I believe he qualifies so anxiously waiting… He got 1260 in his PSAT.

She’s only just taking her first AP class this year, is signed up for 2 next year. She has a 4.0 GPA and is hispanic. She got an e-mail from the Hispanic Scholarship Fund “because of your strong academic performance and your College Board profile”, but I think that’s different from the NHRP. I’m new to all of this and pretty clueless, unfortunately.

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is indeed different from NHRP, but you should look into it.

I’m having trouble finding anyone who’s posted cut off numbers for Indiana, but I did find some info online with useful data. Looks like College Board publishes annual reports per state with the info we’re looking for, though it’s not spelled out exactly. I found an 18-page doc titled SAT Suite of Assessments Annual Report Indiana by College Board which includes a breakdown of PSAT scores by grade levels, percentages, and by every demographic. So based on this info I can see that my son’s score falls in the top 5% of 10th grade scorers in IN and in the top 10% of scorers if he’s being compared with 10th and 11th graders combined. The info on the program doesn’t specify if the 10th graders are supposed to be in the top 10% of all 10th graders only who took the PSAT that year or of all test takers who took the test that year. Either way, I think he makes the cut off.

So try googling this document with your own state’s name to find the data you need.

Thank you! I also asked my guidance counselor to take a look so I’ll update y’all as soon as she gets back to me. Congrats btw!

Thank you! This gives me more peace of mind. I know there are a lot of scammers that pose as collegeboard so like I said, this makes me feel less anxious. Congrats btw!

Thank you! That was super-helpful! But UGH, because of the breakdown I still can’t tell if my son qualifies!

I’m not sure how we can find the top 10% for our state? Someone posted a link to the annual report, but it doesn’t break it down quite like that. It shows percentages of students scoring 1400-1520, and 1200-1390. So…if you scored around 1300 or whatever, you don’t know what percentage that is and if you qualify. Or is there another place that gives the exact cutoff??

Is anyone who qualified from Missouri willing to post their score so we can get an idea of the cutoff and who is qualifying? Thanks! My son got a 1320…seems like that would be close…but is it enough?!
