College Board Opportunity Scholarships

FOR JUNIORS
The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are now open for class of 2022 students. The program lays out six simple steps that all students can take to get to college.
For the class of 2022, the College Board Opportunity Scholarships program will help even more students plan for college, address affordability concerns, and connect them with other scholarship opportunities. Here are a few key changes to the program for the class of 2022:
• More than 7,000 students will earn a scholarship each year, nearly double the number of winners in previous years.
• All scholarship steps for the class of 2022 will be awarded for the same amount: $500. The Complete Your Journey award will remain $40,000.
• There’s a new Explore Scholarships step to help students find scholarship opportunities that may be a good fit for them. And there’s a simplified Practice for the SAT® step that will guide students to begin personalized SAT practice just for them.
At least half of all the scholarships—over $2 million each year—are awarded to students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year (https://pages.collegeboard.org/opportunity-scholarships-income-criteria?SFMC_cid=EM413110-&rid=47468734).
We encourage you to share this information with your juniors and have them sign up for the program. Their first step is to make a starter list of six colleges they’re interested in, for a chance at $500.
