How It Works

The CollegeAdvisor.com Scholars Program was designed to bolster our commitment to equity and accessibility in higher education. Each year, the program provides free, comprehensive admissions support to 80+ high school students with demonstrated financial need. Those students are often also first-generation college applicants and/or from historically underrepresented communities. 

Each Scholar is matched with a primary advisor who provides dedicated support on all aspects of the admissions process. Throughout the year, the Scholar will work with their advisor to develop their essays, prepare for interviews, finalize their college list, and more. Scholars will also attend a series of webinars designed to guide them through every application milestone. 

The Scholars Program is designed to help each student develop their Common Application or Coalition Application, as well as 1-2 school-specific supplements. However, we recognize that each student’s needs will vary, and we are committed to supporting the individual needs of each Scholar throughout their admissions journey.
