The deadline for the Potential Magazine "Don't Wait to Reach Your Potential" $1,000 scholarship has been extended to January 31, 2016. This scholarship is for college-bound teens in grades 9th-12th residing in the state of Alabama. The scholarship does not require specific test scores, GPA, or class ranking. Parents can also register but will need to designate a student to receive the award. In order to be awarded the scholarship, you must be a current C2C eNews subscriber at the time of the drawing.
