Nigerian National Merit Award (NNMA) is conferred on deserving Nigerians with notably outstanding contributions to national developmen in Engineering/Technology, Medicine, Science, and Humanities (inclusive of Art, Culture and other Aspects of Human Advancement).

The award is traditionally conferred on the 1st Thursday in December by the President of Nigeria. The Merit Award is different from the National Honors.

The NNMA covers all areas of life and while many of the awardees have been Academics, it is not reserved for Academics or any particular fields.
