About the 100
The 100 Scholarship Challenge was inspired by a first-generation high school junior who was determined to earn scholarships to pay for college. This student knew that there was no way to attend their dream college without securing scholarships to pay for it. Long story short, the student ended up having 3 times more than what was needed to attend that college of choice.
For how many scholarships did the student apply? Take a wild guess! Yup, 70!
Sabrina successfully completed and submitted 70 scholarships between her junior and senior year in high school. Sabrina graduated high school with enough scholarship money to not only pay for her tuition and fees, but to cover her housing, and her books with thousands of dollars left over to cover the rest of her undergraduate career.
After I witnessed this testimony, it set a new bar, new expectations, and it motivated me to keep pushing my students towards applying to as many scholarships as they could. Sabrina was one of many to complete several scholarships. Just like Sabrina, I believe others can do it! Students there is no reason why you cannot accomplish the same. Not one reason!
