Awards for College Prep Scholars

The College Prep Scholars Program is designed to give high-achieving high school juniors from low-income backgrounds the tools needed to apply to top colleges. From full scholarships to college summer programs to a supportive community of your peers and other specialized resources, College Prep Scholars get a (free!) head start on the college application process.
