    College Board Opportunity Scholarships 
     
     
    Beginning with the class of 2020, we'll be awarding scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000.

    This isn’t your typical scholarship program. It doesn’t require an essay or an application, and it doesn’t have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are different. The program is open to all students who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories. Students can begin today by signing up on our site. The first step is to make a starter list of six colleges they want to attend. Just by making that list, they earn a chance for a $500 scholarship.
     

     
     
     
     

     
     Giving Back to the Community Scholarship
     
    Deadline: July 31, 2019
     

    We believe that it is essential to lead by example and serve one's community and as such, hope to encourage others, particularly students, to do the same.

    We believe it is important to empower others to make the world a better place by helping them realize their full academic potential. Last year, we were happy to select Albert Appouh as the winner of our scholarship because of his leadership and dedication to the community.

    We are proud to continue the Grungo Colarulo Giving Back to the Community Scholarship of $1000 to celebrate individuals who are committed to service in their community.

    The scholarship will be awarded to the student whose essay best describes their experienced commitment to community service and what role their experience with community service has played and will play in their academic career.

    Scholarship Eligibility

    The Giving Back to the Community scholarship is available for any student who is currently enrolled in an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program in the United States. Students who are currently incoming first-year college students and have graduated high school or possesses a GED may also apply. Any eligible candidates must be in good academic standing and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above.

           Avoid Scholarship Scams!

    While navigating the scholarship process you may come across organizations that promise scholarships in exchange for a fee.  The goal of scholarship scams is to deceive like asking for money in advance or promising a scholarship with a "money back guarantee." Information that these companies provide to you is available free of charge through contacting school counselors, colleges, and many legitimate websites such as CFNC.  The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) provides information to the public about ways to avoid scholarships scams.
