BPS Students Win College Board Opportunity Scholarships. More Available!

VIERA, FL -- Congratulations to the following students who have won College Board Opportunity Scholarships: Christina Bennet (Edgewood HS), Carson Brown (Palm Bay HS), Elena Fentress (Viera HS), Laylani Salinas (Viera HS), Madison Simpkins (Satellite HS), and Kai Zhen (Melbourne HS).


The College Board Opportunity Scholarships provide a digital college planning guide to plan, prepare, and pay for college. Students who complete steps in the program are eligible for scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000. The scholarships do not require an essay, application, minimum test score, or GPA. The more effort that students take, the more chances they have to earn scholarships.  At least half of all the scholarships will be designated for students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year.


Seniors, there is still time to take advantage of this opportunity by registering and completing the FASFA. Apply to College sections by February 28th.  Juniors can start the process of registering and completing steps now.  More information can be found at
