F.Y.I. College Board Widens The Net For Scholarships.

The College Board, nonprofit group that administers the SAT and Advanced Placement  tests, launched a 25 $ Million scholarship program that is intended to help students at the bottom of the class as much for those at the top. The organization announced that there will be no minimum grade point average or SAT score requirement.                                                                                                                                                                                                             Students become eligible for scholarships by working their way through a checklist of essential steps in the college application process such as building a list of schools they would be interested in attending, practicing for the SAT, improving their scores and filling out the Free Application for Federal Aid. The program is intended to nudge more students, particularly low income youth many who feel that college costs are out of their range. half of the scholarships will be set aside for students whose families eran less than 60,000 per year.  Moreover, almost 50%  of Americans surveyed last year said they believed earning a four year degree would lead to better jobs and higher lifetime earnings as well. Thirty seven % said that a four year degree was worth the cost from those 18-34 years old.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 In conclusion, The College Board plans to award nearly 20,000 scholarships and these are as follows; 500$ Build a college list, 1,000$ Practice for SAT, 2,000$ Improve SAT scores,500$ Strengthen college lists, 1,000$ Apply for college, 1,000$ Complete the FAFSA, 40,000$ 25 scholarships to students who finish ALL six tasks.
