College Board Opportunity Scholarships


The College Board Opportunity Scholarships guide students through the college planning process and offer them multiple chances to earn money for college.

For each of six actions students take that move them closer to college, they’ll have an opportunity to earn scholarships worth up to $2,000. And when they complete all six steps, they’ll have a chance to earn up to $40,000.
