Applicants must meet all of the following criteria to be eligible for this scholarship:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be an Alabama resident
  • Be enrolled or planning to enroll in an Alabama eligible educational institution
  • Demonstrate financial need

  • Have an ACT score of 26 or below (applicants attending a two-year school will not be required to submit ACT scores)

MONTGOMERY –State Treasurer and CollegeCounts Board Chair Young Boozer is calling on eligible Alabama students to apply for the newly-established CollegeCounts Scholarship.

“This scholarship program will help qualified Alabamians who may find it difficult to get other types of scholarship assistance,” said Treasurer Boozer.

“Not every student makes a 30 or higher on their ACT, or has parents who can afford to write a check for tuition. But there are thousands of bright young minds in our state who work hard and deserve help achieving their dream of a college degree.”

Treasurer Boozer and other members of the CollegeCounts Board announced the scholarship program today at Wetumpka High School. The program is designed to offer financial assistance to Alabama students who plan to enroll in Alabama colleges and universities.

It will provide one-time awards of $4,000 to qualified recipients enrolling in four-year schools and $2,000 to those enrolling in two-year schools. Eligible students may apply online beginning January 2 at www.collegecountsalabama.com.
