    College Board Opportunity Schoolarships

    Class of 2020 - Juniors begin now!  

    The College Board Opportunity Scholarship 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. Instead, it rewards all students’ efforts and actions on their way to college. The more effort that students put in, the more chances they have to earn a scholarship.

    The more effort students put in, the more chances you get to earn a scholarship ranging from $500 to $2,000. If you complete all six steps, you’re eligible to earn a $40,000 scholarship. Scholarships are awarded—through monthly drawings—to students who complete each step.
