College Board Opportunity Scholarship Program
We hope you were able to catch the exclusive broadcast segment on Good Morning America (if not, use the link to watch!), where we announced 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 college. Each step will earn a chance for a scholarship; doing all six will earn a chance to win $40,000 for their college education:
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
The six steps highlighted by College Board Opportunity Scholarships help students plan by making a good starter list of schools, prepare so they can take their best shot at getting in, and pay for college by earning scholarships and applying for financial aid. A video explaining the program is available here. And, read a print exclusive from USA Today on the program.
Students can begin today by signing up at CB.org/Opportunity.
