From website:

“I’m a student. Am I eligible?

The College Board Opportunity Scholarships program is currently open to all class of 2020 and class of 2021 students in the United States, Puerto Rico, and US territories, regardless of citizenship status. For the class of 2021, US citizens and residents attending Department of Defense Education Activity schools abroad may also participate. Students in the class of 2022 will be eligible in late 2020.

 

Are there family income requirements to earn scholarships?

This program is open to students regardless of their family income. At least half of all the scholarships (over $2 million) will be designated for students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year.”

For Students in High School, Middle School, and Elementary School

From website: “NASSP Approved Student Programs

Since 1941, NASSP has published the NASSP List of Approved Contests, Programs, and Activities for Students. The approval cycle for each edition spans from September of a given year through the following August.

The purpose of this list—developed through NASSP’s National Committee on Student Contests, Programs, and Activities—is to assist principals, teachers, parents, and students in determining the legitimacy and educational value of a variety of external student program opportunities.”

National Association of Secondary Principals creates a list of approved contests and activities for high school students. Some of the contests and activities apply to middle school students and elementary school students.

This list is a great place for high school students and their parents to find out about scholarships and competitions they can apply for. This is a treasure trove for students who wish to go to college with little or no debt.
