The College Board opportunity scholarship lays out six simple steps that all Mustangs can take to get to college. After each step is completed, Mustangs have a chance to win $500 for completing the step.

Once all steps are completed Mustangs can earn a reward of $60,000. “We reward students’ efforts on their way to college. The more effort students put in and steps they complete, the more chances they have to earn a scholarship,” said a College Board statement.

More information will be given out during the webinar which can be registered here.
