This morning during an exclusive segment on Good Morning America 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 to college. Students have the chance to earn scholarships when they:
- Build their college list
- Practice for the SAT
- Improve their SAT score
- Strengthen their college list
- Fill out the FAFSA
- 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.
Thanks to valuable input from our membership, this is a clear call to all students, not just those at the front of the class, that they can be a scholar; that they can go to college. We are asking all students to step up no matter where they stand, no matter where they’ve been.
