These programs connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded these honors through the College Board’s Student Search Service.

Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year. Students receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications.
