Scholarship Opportunity for JUNIORS
College Board's $25 Million National Scholarship Program Now Open for High School Juniors
Earlier this year, the College Board announced that it is investing $5 million per year for the creation of College Board Opportunity Scholarships, beginning with the class of 2020. Nationwide, students will have the opportunity to enter to win scholarships after completing six action steps that must be taken during certain time periods during their junior and senior years. Completing each step will earn students a chance to win a scholarship of $500 to $2,000. This scholarship program is unlike many others because it does not have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement, nor is an essay or lengthy application required. Rather, the Opportunity Scholarships reward students' actions on their way to college, making it open to all.
