Current Scholarships and Opportunities

CURRENT SCHOLARSHIPS & OPPORTUNITIES
 
COLLEGE BOARD OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIPS: Getting into college can be complicated and overwhelming. To support students and families, the College Board has introduced the College Board Opportunity Scholarships, a first-of-its-kind national scholarship program. It is unique because it serves as a simple college planning guide for all students. It explains what to do and when to do it. 
 
The College Board Opportunity Scholarships lay out six simple steps that all students can take to get into college. Completing each step will earn a chance for a scholarship; completing all six will earn students a chance to win $40,000 for their college education.  
 
 
The six steps in this program help students plan by making a good starter college list. This helps students prepare to take their best shot, and help them pay for college. The six actions are:
  • Building a College List - Get started by exploring colleges they are interested in attending.
  • Practicing for the SAT - Use Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy to get ready for test day.
  • Improving SAT Scores - Show how practice pays off by improving their SAT scores.
  • Strengthening Their College List - College list is a mix of academic safety, fit, & reach schools.
  • Completing the FAFSA - Fill out the free government form to apply for financial aid.
  • Applying to Colleges - Apply to the schools they want to attend.
 
The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are different from other scholarship programs because they are about how much students grow, not how high they score. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships do not require an essay or an application, and do not have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement. Instead, the program rewards all students’ efforts and actions on their way to college. The more effort students put in and the actions they complete, the more chances they have to earn a college scholarship.
 
The College Board is investing $25 million over five years. A total of $5 million is available for each graduating class, beginning with the class of 2020. All students are invited.
 
Students can sign up at CB.org/Opportunity. The program officially launches in December. However, students can start today by going to BigFuture to make a starter list of six colleges they are interested in. Just by making that list, students earn a chance for a $500 scholarship. Then students can take the next step toward earning a $40,000 scholarship by going to SATPractice.org to receive free, personalized practice on Khan Academy. Please contact Sara Sympson from the College Board with any questions.

This is because Oregonians love our land and we manage it to produce heathy trees, clean air and cool drinking water. We would love for students or Oregon to understand what surrounds them and appreciate the historic significance. We created this scholarship to educate students about this subject. Students interview three professionals and write a 5-7 page essay on this theme. We will choose recipients based solely on essays, not transcripts. We host one high school level contest and one undergraduate level contest this year. This scholarship will be offered annually. For all information, visit our website at www.senecascholarship.org.
