As one of the nation’s largest college financial aid programs in the country, the Horatio Alger National Scholarship Program is one of the major scholarship programs nationally that specifically assists high school students who have faced and overcome great obstacles in their young lives. The scholarships are funded by Horatio Alger Members who, like the Scholars, have experienced challenges but ultimately overcame them to become successful business and civic leaders. The National Scholarship is awarded to eligible students in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. National Scholars receive an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., during the spring of their senior year to participate in the National Scholars Conference. Applicants must maintain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0, be involved in co-curricular and community service activities, and demonstrate critical financial need ($55,000 or lower adjusted gross family income is required). Individuals with a permanent resident card, US green card or who received permanent residency under the DREAM Act are not eligible.
