The College Board has announced a new scholarship system: the College Board Opportunity Scholarships, a $25 million commitment to encourage more students to take the steps necessary to get into college. This first-of-its-kind national scholarship program lays out six simple steps that all students can take to get into college. Students have the chance to earn scholarships when they: 1. Build their college list. 2. Practice for the SAT®. 3. Improve their SAT score. 4. Strengthen their college list. 5. Fill out the FAFSA. 6. Apply to college. Beginning with the class of 2020, we'll be awarding scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000. This isn’t your typical scholarship program. It doesn’t require an essay or an application, and it doesn’t have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are different. The program is open to all students who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships were designed to save counselors time by providing simple guidance to all kids. By taking each step, students can show college admission officers their resourcefulness and grit beyond test scores alone, while being rewarded along the way. Students can begin today by signing up on our site. The first step is to make a starter list of six colleges they want to attend. Just by making that list, they earn a chance for a $500 scholarship.
