You could get $2,000 for your higher education.

Rising college costs have created big challenges for students and their parents. That's why, four years ago, we introduced the ALEC Bright Future Scholarship Program. It's designed to support the academic dreams of young ALEC members and lessen the financial load for them and their families.

Who is eligible.
Scholarship eligibility is open to ALEC members aged 17-24 who are high school seniors, high school graduates not enrolled in college and college undergraduates. They must plan to attend an accredited two- or four-year college or vocational school for the full 2022-2023 academic year. Not a member yet? Click here to Join.

When to apply.
Applications will be accepted starting February 3, 2022. The deadline for submission is March 31, 2022, and the scholarship winners will be announced on or around June 1, 2022.
