Will an ACT score of 33 qualify me for scholarships?

Hey everyone, I'm feeling a mix of nervousness and excitement as I start to plan out my finances for college. I've been wondering if my ACT score can actually help me out. Do you guys know if scoring a 33 on the ACT might qualify me for any significant scholarships? Any advice on where to find this kind of info would be super helpful!

Hello! It's fantastic that you're considering how your ACT scores can impact financial aid opportunities. A score of 33 on the ACT is indeed quite impressive, and it places you above the 90th percentile of test-takers nationally. Many colleges offer merit-based scholarships that take standardized test scores into account, and with a 33, you'd likely be a strong candidate for such awards. The amount and availability can vary greatly between institutions, so it's best to research the specific scholarships offered by the colleges you're interested in.

Additionally, you should look into state-sponsored scholarships, as some states offer awards to students who achieve high scores on standardized tests. The financial aid pages on college websites are a good place to start for college-specific scholarships, and your state's Department of Education website can provide information on state-funded opportunities. Preparing a list of schools and then checking their scholarship criteria systematically will set you on the right track. Best of luck in your search!
