In addition to accepting the CLT as a college entrance exam, some colleges and universities offer scholarships based on results of the CLT. Check back periodically for the latest scholarship offers.
The 1st to 120 Scholarship
Hundreds of students receive a perfect score on the SAT and ACT every year. As the newest and most rigorous college entrance exam, the CLT is still looking for its first perfect-score recipient. To date, after rounds of beta testing as well as our official tests, the highest score of any CLT test-taker is 116. The first student to score a perfect 120 will receive a full tuition/room/board CLT scholarship to any CLT partnered college in the U.S. or Canada. In the unlikely event that multiple test-takers receive a perfect score on the same CLT, the scholarship will be divided among the winners based on the average net cost of college at a four-year private university ($36,000). High school graduates already enrolled in college are not eligible. In addition, students who win the scholarship must still complete the FAFSA and disclose their expected family contribution (EFC) to the head of CLI's College Counseling Center.
