About the Scholarship
When it comes to college, it’s never too early to explore, research, and dream. And you’re not alone: We’re here to help guide you through that journey.

Students in the class of 2020 who build a college list with six or more colleges on our college planning site, BigFuture™, can earn a chance at a $500 scholarship.

The College Board will award 100 Build scholarships every month from January through July 2019.

How to Qualify
Sign in to your College Board account and build a college list on BigFuture™ with at least six colleges to earn one entry in the monthly drawing.

As you research, update your list of six or more colleges in later months to earn another entry.

Get Started
Search for colleges on BigFuture™ and save them to your list. Make sure you’re signed in to your College Board account to save your list.
Add at least six schools to your list.

Tips for Building Your List
What is a college list?
A college list is a list of colleges and universities that could be a good fit for you. The list can include schools close to home or in other cities and states.

How to build a strong list?
Consider colleges that match your interests, goals, and what’s important to you. You can use average GPA and test scores, potential majors, and other factors to help you narrow it down.

How to earn entries?
Earn an entry by adding at least six colleges to your college list on BigFuture™. Update your college list in later months to enter again. Make sure to have at least six colleges on your list.

Increase Your Chances
Update your list in later months as you explore schools that could be a good fit for you. If you edit your list and it still has six or more colleges, you'll earn another entry during that month.

Dates and Deadlines
Scholarships are awarded every month from January through July 2019. A new eligibility window starts on the first day of each month and ends at midnight on the last day of the month. The drawing occurs on the first day of the following month.

Drawing Notifications
On the drawing dates, 100 students will be randomly selected on the drawing dates to receive a $500 scholarship. 50 of those scholarships will go to students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year.

We’ll notify qualified students by email to sign in and go to their My Achievements page to see the results.
