If you are a BYU National Scholarship finalist, have BYU as your first-choice school, and qualify for a multi-year scholarship, you may be eligible for a BYU-sponsored National Merit scholarship, which pays full LDS tuition for eight semesters.
Three different organizations sponsor National Merit Scholarships. Scholarships are funded by National Merit, corporations, or universities. National Merit chooses which scholarships to sponsor, corporations choose which scholarships to sponsor, and a list is sent to each university listing everyone else who listed that school as their first choice.

How should I file it (the FAFSA application
BYU evaluates the list and chooses which students to sponsor. To be considered for a BYU-sponsored Merit Scholarship, a student must first qualify for a Russell M. Nelson Scholarship or a Heritage Scholarship. If the student receives one of these two scholarships, is a National Merit finalist with BYU as their first choice, and is not sponsored by National Merit or a corporation, BYU will select them as a National Merit Scholar.
A student who is sponsored by National Merit or a corporation is not eligible for a BYU-sponsored National Merit Scholarship. All National Merit Selection Committee decisions will be made public after June 1.
