Financial need is NOT considered; all income levels are encouraged to apply.
Awards range from $1,000 to $5,000 each; with
multiple winners to be selected. Each award is a non-renewable,
one-time award and is to be used exclusively to offset costs and fees
related directly to the student's first year of higher post-secondary
education at an accredited institution of the student's choosing within
the United States. In the event an underclassman is an award recipient,
the monies will be held by the American College Foundation until the
student completes high school and begins their higher education; at
which time the awarded amount will be distributed.
The American College Foundation Scholarship Committee will
determine, and has final say, on all award recipients. Selected
recipients agree that their application and award information; including
essay, picture, name, state, high school grade level, and award amount
may be acknowledged on the American College Foundation website and
