Act Six Scholarship Program

Scholarship Sponsored by Act Six

Value: $195,000
Awards Available: 14

Act Six is a leadership and scholarship program that connects local faith-based community affiliates with faith- and social justice-based colleges to equip emerging urban and community leaders to engage the college campus and their communities at home through a simple but powerful four-part strategy.

We partner with Common App to make applying for Act Six easy and efficient. There is no fee for Act Six, and with your completed Common App you can also apply to your choice of more than 1,000 colleges around the country.

You can begin the 2023-24 application by submitting an interest form and adding Act Six to your Common App.

STUDENTS ARE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY NOW IF THEY:

  • love their community and want to use their college education to make a difference as a leader on campus and at home;
  • will graduate from high school in 2024, or previously graduated in 2023 or 2022;
  • are not currently enrolled at a four-year college (students at two-year colleges may apply);
  • live in one of four Act Six program sites; and
  • want to attend at least one of the Act Six partner colleges in their program site.

While ethnicity and family income are considered as factors in selecting an intentionally diverse group of scholars, there are no income restrictions, and students from all racial and ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

There is no minimum GPA requirement and admissions standards vary across our partner colleges. In general, applicants with a GPA below 3.0 will need to demonstrate their readiness for academic success in college through their recommendations, essays and/or test scores.
