College Board Opportunity Scholarships

The disruption from school closings is hard to navigate, but like you, the College Board is committed to ensuring rising seniors don’t lose college planning momentum.

The College Board Opportunity Scholarships program is open to all students from the class of 2021 and guides them through important steps in the college planning process at their own pace at home. When students take the first two steps—exploring college and practicing for the SAT®—they’ll qualify for $500 and $1,000 scholarships just by getting ready for college. And they don’t even have to get off the couch.

It’s important to encourage students to complete the first step—building a college list—by July 31 so they don’t miss out on a chance to win $40,000 for college.
