The College Board has launched a new $25 million scholarship program to help students not only pay for college but also navigate the application and transition processes. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships Program gives students a simple six-step plan that shows them the specific actions they need to take in order to apply to college.
Students have a chance to earn scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000 at every step. 4,000 students each year will earn scholarships totaling $5 million, and at least half of all the scholarships ($2.5 million) are designated for students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year. Presenters will share a detailed overview of this unique scholarship program and demonstrate how counselors and educators can support students in signing up for the program.
