Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award aid, which is often too late to impact a student’s college ambitions or choices, enables students to earn grant aid throughout high school, starting as early as 9th grade, for doing all the things that best prepare them to succeed, whether that’s getting good grades, volunteering in the community or joining an extracurricular.


The amount that students earn from a college on represents a guaranteed minimum amount of aid they’ll receive if they apply and are admitted to that college.
