College Bound Scholarship Program

Are you in the 7th or 8th grade and already thinking about your plans for college?  It might seem like a long way off, but you'll be heading off to college before you know it!  The College Bound Scholarship Program is an awesome opportunity for people who meet the guidelines, but you have to sign up as either a 7th or 8th grade student to be eligible.  What is the College Bound Scholarship Program? I'm glad you asked:

"The College Bound Scholarship program encourages low-income, middle school students to choose a path that will lead to educational success after high school.

The program promises tuition (at public institution rates) and a small book allowance for income-eligible students who sign up in the 7th or 8th grade, work hard in school, stay out of legal trouble and successfully apply to a higher education institution when they graduate.

Students must apply by the end of their 8th grade year, but only need to sign up once."
