This unique program guides students through the college planning process and offers them a chance to earn money for college for each action they complete. The program is open to juniors and seniors who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories—regardless of GPA, test scores, citizenship status, and family income—no matter what their plans or goals are after high school. U.S. citizens and residents attending Department of Defense Education Activity schools abroad are also eligible for the program. More than 7,000 students each year will be able to earn scholarships, ranging from $500 to $40,000, for two- or four-year institutions. Half of all scholarships will be awarded to students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year.
