One scholarship. Endless opportunities!
As one of the nation’s largest need-based college scholarship programs in the country, the Horatio Alger Scholarship Programs specifically assist high school students who have faced and overcome great obstacles in their young lives. While many programs are directed primarily to recognizing academic achievement or leadership potential, the Horatio Alger Association seeks students who have exhibited determination, integrity, and perseverance in overcoming adversity, as well as have critical financial need. Scholarships are available in every state to current high school seniors in the United States.
Applicants must be enrolled full time as a high school senior in the United States, and be progressing normally toward graduation in spring/summer of 2017 with plans to enter a college in the United States no later than the fall following graduation.
