101 Scholarship


The 101 Scholar Program is back! Class 101 will be awarding four high school students, nationwide, who use their unique skills to make a difference in their community. Each student will win a $3,000 scholarship, and applications will be accepted beginning March 1, 2023 until April 15, 2023. 

The 101 Scholar represents students who exemplify demonstrated leadership in making their community a better place. Since the program started in 2017, Class 101 has granted over $14,000 in scholarships to high school students across the United States.

This year, the scholarship is based 60% on the degree to which they are making a difference in the community, 30% on the extent to which they demonstrate leadership, and 10% on how they are achieving academically. All high school students, regardless of grade, are eligible to apply.

“At Class 101, we know that college can be expensive, with costs topping six figures,” says Tom Pabin, Class 101 Founder and CEO. “Getting that cost down for students and families is one of our top priorities,and one of the ways we can do that is by awarding national scholarships.”

To apply, students have two options. They can create a video between 1-2 minutes or write a maximum 500-word personal statement. Students can pick from one of the two prompts below:

1. Provide a short description of one of your high school activities. Describe how it changed your view of leadership. Why did your view change? What do you plan to do with your new outlook?

2. Provide a short description of a community service or high school activities you participated in Describe the role you played and the impact you had on others. How do you know you made a difference? What leadership skills did you use to make an impact?

This year, the four winning students will be chosen from a panel of judges. We encourage all students to apply if they believe this sounds like the perfect opportunity for them.

Winners will be announced in May. Apply at!
