Saving for your children’s college education is a great way to help them reach their potential. But it certainly helps a lot more when they help themselves by studying hard and making good grades.

That’s why CollegeCounts is proud to offer the CollegeCounts Scholarship.

If your student will be a high school senior or a first-time college freshman beginning fall of 2019, and they plan on attending an in-state school, they may be eligible to apply for this needs-based scholarship.

Approximately $1.1 million was awarded to 337 Alabama students entering college this fall, representing 176 high schools in 65 Alabama counties. This year marks the third consecutive year CollegeCounts has been able to award over $1 million to Alabama students!
