The CSDE has teamed up with the College Board to launch a supplemental pool of scholarship funds available to Connecticut students from lower-income families starting with the class of 2020. As of June 1, 2019, Connecticut students from lower income-families who join the national College Board Opportunity Scholarships program are eligible for an additional $40,000 in scholarships per year.

The additional scholarships available to Connecticut students will be awarded monthly through random drawings among all eligible students, beginning with the class of 2020.

Additionally, all students can earn a chance for scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,000 by completing steps on the path to college. Doing all six steps will earn students a chance for $40,000 for their college education. More information about the College Board Opportunity Scholarships can be found at
