September 7, 2021

Apply by September 30th to the Optimal Scholarship. The program will award $2,000 each to winners in three submission categories: Community College Scholarship, Undergraduate Scholarship, and Online Degree Scholarship.

Background: To further our mission to make higher education more accessible, Optimal launched its needs-based scholarship program in 2010. Since then, we’ve given over $915,000 ]to multiple recipients with high financial need and strong career aspirations.

Eligibility:

• Community College Scholarship: Students enrolled at a public community college, junior college, technical college, or city college, and working towards a certificate, diploma, or degree at the associate’s level or a first-time bachelor’s level.
• Undergraduate Scholarship: Undergraduate students enrolled at a private or public educational institution, and working towards a certificate, diploma, or degree at the associate’s level or a first-time bachelor’s level.
• Online Degree Scholarship: Students enrolled at a private or public educational institution, and working towards a certificate, diploma, or degree at the associate’s, bachelor’s or post-bachelor’s level. The academic program must be pursued online – all classes require little to no attendance on campus.

How to Apply:
To apply, complete a brief online application along with two 300-500 word responses to the prompts provided. The students whose responses are the most persuasive, compelling, and well-written, as judged by the selection panel, will be considered finalists.
