That's why we created the CollegeCounts Scholarship: to provide funding assistance to Alabama high school students who demonstrate a financial need and a genuine desire to make a difference in what's next. If you're thinking about enrolling at an Alabama college or university, don’t let funds get in the way. The CollegeCounts Scholarship might just be for you!

    -Be a high school senior who will be a first-time college freshman in the fall
    -Be a U.S. citizen
    -Be an Alabama resident
    -Planning to enroll in an Alabama eligible educational institution in the fall
    -Demonstrate financial need
    -Have a minimum GPA of 2.75
    -ACT score cannot exceed 26 (applicants attending a two-year school will not be required to submit ACT scores)

    This is a one-time, non-renewable award granted on a semester basis in the first academic year.
