College Board Opportunity Scholarship- Various Due Dates

A first-of-its-kind national scholarship program that guides students through the college planning process and offers a chance for them to earn money for college for each action completed. We are investing $5 million per year in the College Board Opportunity Scholarships, beginning with the class of 2020.This 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 and actions they complete, the more chances they have to earn a scholarship.
 
The six steps in this program help students plan by making a good starter list of schools, help them prepare so they can take their best shot, and help them pay for college. Completing each step will earn a chance for a scholarship; completing all six will earn a chance to win $40K for their college education.  The six actions are:
    1. Build Your College List: $500: Get started by exploring colleges you’re interested in.
    2. Practice for the SAT: $1,000: Use Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy to get ready for test day.
    3. Improve Your Score: $2,000: Show how practice pays off by improving your SAT score.
    4. Strengthen Your College List: $500: Make sure your college list has a mix of academic safety, fit, and reach schools.
    5. Complete the FAFSA: $1,000: Fill out the free government form to apply for financial aid.
    6. Apply to Colleges: $1,000: Apply to the schools you want to attend.
Complete all six scholarship steps to be eligible for a $40,000 scholarship.
Students can sign up at CB.org/Opportunity. Even before the program officially launches in December, students can go to BigFuture and create their starter college list and go to SATPractice.org to receive free, personalized practice on Khan Academy.  As students take these steps, more students will view college as a possibility.
