Junior and Senior Collegeboard Scholarships

 Applying to college can be a complicated process, but this program guides students through each important step and rewards their efforts. This unique scholarship program is open to all students, regardless of income, citizenship status, GPA, or test scores. It encourages students to complete six essential steps that move them closer to college with the chance to earn scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000, for two- or four-year institutions. Half of all scholarships will be awarded to students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year.
