Abby’s Closet invites you to apply for their scholarship if you are a high school student who identifies as female and is graduating in 2021

March 2nd, 2021

Abby’s Closet invites you to apply for this award if you are a high school student who identifies as female and is graduating in 2021 from a school in Oregon or Washington.

About Abby’s Closet: The mission of Abby’s Closet, an Oregon-based nonprofit, is to inspire confidence and respect in high school women by providing free formal dresses for prom or other memorable events. For some students, getting a free dress from Abby’s Closet is the only way they’re able to attend prom, an important celebration and rite of passage. But we’re also more than a dress – or really, more than the 30,000 dresses we’ve given away so far – because we’re just as focused on sequins and satin as we are on education, confidence, and inclusiveness. We empower high school students to learn leadership skills through our Student Advisory Board. We award a college scholarship each year. We are welcoming to people of different gender identities, abilities, sizes and socioeconomic status. The goal of Abby’s Closet is to make every participant feel special, beautiful, and confident.

Founded in 2004, Abby’s Closet started in, well, Abby’s closet. When heading off to college, Abby Egland wanted to ensure her favorite pink prom dress wouldn’t just collect dust, and recognized it could still bring so much joy to someone else. She wanted to give it another chance to dance! Founding Abby’s Closet with her mom, Sally Egland, the non-profit has hosted more than a decade of Prom Dress Giveaways for students from more than 250 schools in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

The 2 applicants that best embody the spirit and mission of Abby’s Closet will receive a $2,500 scholarship award and will be invited to attend a private giveaway to select her perfect dress and accessories. A check will be written to the selected applicant’s college/university/trade school after registration.

GENERAL GUIDELINES:

Applicant must identify as female high school student in Grade 12 at a school in Oregon or Washington, who is graduating in 2021.

Applicant must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better and is intending to pursue post-secondary education (college, university, trade school, etc.)

Applicant cannot be a current Abby’s Closet Student Advisory Board member or the child/grandchild of a current Board member.

Application, along with an unofficial transcript should be submitted online or emailed to dreams@abbyscloset.org by midnight on Friday, April 16, 2021.
Winners agree to be interviewed, photographed and/or videotaped by Abby’s Closet, as well as any other media outlet(s). If the winner is under 18 years old, a parent or guardian must grant permission.

Scholarship Opportunities for the Class of 2022

February 19th, 2021

The College Board Opportunity Scholarships program is now open for class of 2022 students. It guides students step by step through the college planning process. For each step that a student completes, they’ll earn a chance at a $500 scholarship. When they complete all six steps, they’ll earn a chance at $40,000. 

Who can apply:

The College Board Opportunity Scholarships program is currently open to class of 2022 regardless of family income.

At least half of all the scholarships will be designated for students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year. Whenever students who meet that criteria complete a college planning step, they’ll get an extra entry in monthly drawings and have double the chances to earn scholarships.

The program is open to all students, even those who do not take a College Board assessment (PSAT, SAT or AP). None of the six steps for class of 2022 students require sitting for an SAT assessment.

The program is also open to the class of 2021 until the end of February 2021. For more information, please see the official rules.
