New for the Class of 2021

The College Board Opportunity Scholarships program opens in December juniors. Save the getting started steps below and schedule a kick-off activity before winter break.

Early efforts will get rewarded! Students who’ve already taken action to build their college list on BigFuture™ and link their College Board and Khan Academy® accounts to practice for the SAT® on Official SAT Practice will automatically earn a scholarship entry when they join the program once it opens next month.

Getting Your Juniors Started in December

1. Students should join the program by signing in with their existing College Board account (same one they used for the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT®) or they can create an account if they don’t have one.
2. They should click on the yellow Earn Scholarships button at the top of the homepage.
3. They should review the official rules on the Opt In screen and click Agree. Then they’re ready to start turning their efforts into scholarships!
