Frederick Douglas

Frederick Douglas Distinguished Scholars -Scholarship

The award-winning Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholars (FDDS) program at American University (AU) is offering five full scholarships to high-potential, incoming first-year student leaders dedicated to post-baccalaureate education, socially-responsible leadership, and lifelong achievement! 

FDDS personify innovation, entrepreneurial thinking, and originality. They are a new generation of leaders in relentless pursuit of excellence. FDDS draw on the knowledge, experience, and network of influential alumni, faculty, and staff to prepare for graduate/professional school, develop long-term personal and professional goals, and hone the specialized skills necessary for socially-responsible leadership. 

Ranked among the top three in Washington, DC, AU’s undergraduate schools and colleges include business, international studies, communications, public affairs, and arts and sciences. The FDDS benefit from AU’s location in the nation’s capital, providing unparalleled access to immersive leadership training and opportunities that develop their capacity to lead measurable change in an ever-changing world. Bringing together the best of AU – personal development, professional development, and leadership development – the FDDS program elevates the college-to-career experience of our most enterprising Honors students and propels them into successful careers in domestic and international entrepreneurship, health, business, government, law, communications, and education. To this end, AU has designed programs and established partnerships to intentionally foster a mutually respectful learning community in which FDDS come together to share a greater purpose, prepare for modern leadership challenges, and contribute to the intellectual, social, and political environment of the institution.

 Selected on the basis of recommendation letters, intellectual curiosity, leadership experience, personal qualities, and interest in attending graduate and/or professional school, FDDS receive AU’s most prestigious merit-based scholarship - full tuition, room, board, meal plan, books, metro pass, and mandatory fees. It is renewable for a total of four years of undergraduate study, provided Scholars maintain a minimum cumulative 3.2 GPA. Students applying as freshmen who would like to be considered for the scholarship must complete the FDDS program application by January 15th. 

While we encourage applications from all ambitious, well-rounded student leaders, the most competitive applicants will have a minimum 3.8 GPA (unweighted) or 4.0 GPA (weighted). Standardized test scores are not required and submission is optional.

College Board Opportunity Scholarships

A $25 million commitment to encourage more students to take the steps necessary to get into college. This first-of-its-kind national scholarship program lays out six simple steps that all students can take to get into college. Students have the chance to earn scholarships when they:

Build their college list.

Practice for the SAT®.

Improve their SAT score.

Strengthen their college list.

Fill out the FAFSA.

Apply to college.

We hear from students and families across the country that getting into college is an overwhelming and complicated process. They're hungry for a simple guide that tells them what to do and when to do it. The six steps highlighted by College Board Opportunity Scholarships help students plan by making a good starter list of schools, prepare so they can take their best shot at getting in, and pay for college by earning scholarships and applying for financial aid.

Beginning with the class of 2020, we'll be awarding scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000.

This isn’t your typical scholarship program. It doesn’t require an essay or an application, and it doesn’t have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are different. The program is open to all students who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories.
The College Board Opportunity Scholarships were designed to save counselors time by providing a simple guide to all kids. By taking each step, students can show college admission officers their resourcefulness and grit beyond test scores alone, while being rewarded along the way.

Our message today to all students, not just those at the front of the class, is that they can be a scholar and that they can go to college. We're asking all students to step up no matter where they stand, no matter where they’ve been.

Students can begin today by signing up on our site. The first step is to make a starter list of six colleges they want to attend. Just by making that list, they earn a chance for a $500 scholarship.

I hope you’ll share this email with friends and colleagues—we are eager to reach as many students as we can. Visit the College Board Opportunity Scholarships website for detailed information and additional resources.
