The Horatio Alger Association offers one of the largest need-based college scholarship programs in the country. The Horatio Alger Scholarship Programs specifically assist high school students who’ve faced and overcome great obstacles in their young lives. While many programs are primarily focused on recognizing academic achievement or leadership potential, they seek students who have exhibited determination, integrity, and perseverance in overcoming adversity, as well as have critical financial need.
The application period for high school seniors pursuing bachelor’s degree programs ends October 25. The application for career and technical education is open until August 15; this is for students pursuing associate degrees or technical certifications.
