This need-based scholarship provides assistance to students with critical financial need, with family incomes not exceeding $50,000 per year. Students must be high school seniors planning to graduate and attend college full-time in the fall.

Eligible students must pursue a bachelor degree program; however, they may begin at a two-year school and then transfer to a four-year college or university. Students must also maintain a grade point average of 2.0 or above and demonstrate an interest in using their degree to help others.

The Horatio Alger Association was established in 1947 and named after Horatio Alger Jr., a 19th century author who wrote about overcoming adversity.
