101 Scholar


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 $1,000 scholarship, and applications will be accepted beginning March 1, 2022 until May 1, 2022.

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 $10,000 in scholarships to ten 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. Describe a moment that pushed you to make a change. What did you do and what was the end result?

2. Talk about one of your unique skills or talents. How have you used it to help your community?

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 June. Visit to apply.
