College can be the best time of your life. But paying for college isn't easy. In fact the cost of college can make some students afraid to even try. That's why we created the CollegeCounts Scholarship: to provide funding assistance to Alabama high school students who demonstrate a financial need and a genuine desire to make a difference in what's next. If you're thinking about enrolling at an Alabama college or university don’t let funds get in the way. The CollegeCounts Scholarship might just be for you!
