The U.S. Bates Scholarship program is administered through the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). Those who advance in the competition will be notified by NMSC directly. 

Scholarship recipients will be notified by NMSC in March 2020. (Students who do not advance are not notified as such but can assume they have not won if they do not hear from NMSC by December 2019.) 

Just to recap, students apply for the Bates Scholarship during the first half of their junior high school year and are notified if they are selected in March of their senior year.
