How will the College Prep Scholarship help your students?
Selection as a College Prep Scholar is a distinction that signifies academic success and leadership despite having faced financial challenges. College Prep Scholarship awards give high-achieving, low-income juniors the tools they need to prepare successful applications to top colleges, and help them understand that the generous financial aid at these colleges makes attending affordable–if not free. The awards include full scholarships to college summer programs, invitations to our National College Admissions conferences, and more.
Who is qualified for the College Prep Scholarship?
College Prep Scholars are often first in their class, from households earning less than $60,000 per year for a family of four, and of the first generation in their families to attend college. Last year, we provided more than 3,000 College Prep Scholars with resources to help them achieve their college dreams. Your students could be next.
