College Board Opportunity Scholarships

The College Board Opportunity Scholarships is a different kind of scholarship program. Students do not have to write an essay, fill out an application, or have a specific GPA or test score. The program rewards students for simply completing the actions they need to take in order to apply to college. The more effort students put in, the more opportunities they have to earn a scholarship. By completing the six actions outlined in the program, students become eligible to earn $40,000. Scholarships will be awarded through monthly drawings to students who complete each action. The program is open to all class of 2020 students who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories. Students in the class of 2021 will be eligible beginning in late 2019. There is no citizenship requirement.
