College Board Opportunity Scholarships

Starting with the class of 2020, 4,000 students over the next five years can earn scholarships ranging from $500–$40,000 through monthly drawings as they start their college journey.

This new scholarship program requires no application, essay, GPA, or test scores. Students earn their chance at scholarships by completing the essential steps all students take in applying to college. Since the launch of the program, nearly 200 students have been awarded a $500 Build Your College List Scholarship and 300 students have been awarded a $1,000 Practice for the SAT® Scholarship.

Here's what one scholarship winner had to say:

“This is a fantastic program because it not only motivates students to learn but also to prepare for college. I for one recently came to realize all the preparation that comes with applying to college and College Board Opportunity Scholarships motivated me to get things done.”
—Jennifer, Florida, $1,000 Practice Scholarship Winner

Students in the class of 2020 can opt in and get started now.
