College Board Opportunity Scholarships

Scholarship Overview:
Applying to college is a complicated process, so we’ve created a program that guides you through it. It doesn’t require an essay, application, or minimum GPA. Instead, it rewards your effort and initiative. Complete key steps along your path to college for a chance to earn scholarships. The more effort you put in, the more opportunities you have to earn a scholarship. Complete all six, and you’re eligible to earn $40,000.
