<p>Does anyone know if Caltech, MIT, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and Cornel award money to national merit scholarship finalists? Or how I can find out?</p>

The Hopkins-National Merit/National Achievement Scholarships (Top)</p>
<p>Hopkins awards National Merit/National Achievement Scholarships each year to National Merit/Achievement Finalists. To qualify, you must indicate Hopkins as your first choice institution with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation by April 1 of your senior year. Awards range from $500 to $2,000 and are renewable for four years on the basis of academic standing. No separate application is required. Recipients are notified of the award along with the letter of admission.
<p>For what it's worth, I know off-hand that none of the Ivies nor MIT will offer $$ for National Merit.</p>
<p>Thanks. Universities don't make it easy to find this information.</p>
