College Board Opportunity Scholarships
The College Board Opportunity Scholarships offer nearly $5 million in scholarships each year as a way to reward students for their efforts to plan and pay for college. The program is currently open to the class of 2022. Students should plan to complete six college planning steps for six separate chances at $500. When they finish all six, they’ll be entered into a drawing for a $40,000 scholarship, but they can still earn money even if they don’t complete them all. The first two steps are now open to juniors. The rest will open up over the next year.
