Over $40,000 in Scholarships for College Students, High School Students, and Students Entering College

August 22, 2019

 

For College Students

Unpacking the Scholarship America Dream Award

Yesterday, I posted the $15,000 Scholarship America Dream Award. The purpose of the award is to encourage first year students to continue and pursue college into the second year.

Students who apply must fit the criteria below, which means a student

  • Graduated from a U.S. high school or equivalent (such as HiSET, TASC, or GED) by September 2019
  • Finished one full year of postsecondary education by June 2020
  • Have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent). [Since many first year students will not have a GPA until December 2019, this applies to your most recent GPA, such as the GPA on your high school transcript or equivalent]
