High School Student Scholarships
CollegeAmerica provides valuable scholarship opportunities to students who are graduating from high school:
Presidential Scholarship: The Presidential Scholarship provides Full-Tuition. Each on-ground campus of CollegeAmerica can award the Presidential Scholarship each year to a graduating high school student, if all criteria are met. A CollegeAmerica representative will administer an approved test at high schools throughout the college’s region. The student in each region who scores highest on this test and also gets the highest ACT score (24 minimum) may be awarded this full-tuition scholarship. To stay eligible for the scholarship, the recipient must keep a cumulative GPA of 3.0. One Presidential Scholarship can be awarded each year at each campus location.
Counselor’s Choice Scholarship: Each year, two Counselor’s Choice Scholarship certificates will be given to a high school counselor at each high school where a college representative makes a presentation. The high school counselor may award the certificates to two graduating high school seniors. If you qualify, you’ll receive an award of either $15,000 toward an associate’s degree or $25,000 toward a bachelor’s degree.
To be eligible for a Counselor’s Choice Scholarship, you must:
- 1. Be selected by your high school counselor for the scholarship
- 2. Interview with one of the college’s admissions consultants
- 3. Meet all admissions criteria for enrollment in your chosen degree program
- 4. Enroll in and start classes no later than December 31 of your graduation year
To remain eligible for the scholarship, you must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
Academic Scholarship: Academic scholarships valued at up to $8,000 may be awarded by an on-ground campus to students who are graduating from high school. In order to use the scholarship, awardees must enroll and begin classes at CollegeAmerica within one year from the date of their high school graduation. Applicants whose final high school GPA is 3.5 or higher (official transcript required) are exempt from taking a test. Other applicants are required to take the Otis Lennon test, and they could receive an award based on their score:
- 1. Applicants who score >34 receive a scholarship worth $7,000
