USAA National Science Merit Award

Is this of any worth to put on my app to the Stanford EPGY institutes? Or is this just another hoax to make money?

<p>bump.............</p>

<p>I was wondering the same thing. Almost half of my class recieved them so I was mildly assuming they were just given out to everyone who's kinda smart.</p>

<p>What is the USAA National Science Merit Award?</p>

<p>I would have to say yes, put in on there. Even though those types of things are just money-making strategies, but it does sound impressive. I got it in 9th grade, so I included it in my resume. If the application only has limited space, though, and you have other accomplishments that are more worthwhile, then I would say leave it off.</p>

<p>Any other feedback on this and how it is awarded?</p>
