College Board Opportunity Scholarships

College Board has 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

Students can begin today by signing up on our site (College Board 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.
