Still need a bit more of a breakdown?

We want to give you $1 as a kinda symbolic gesture to mark the start of your college and scholarship search. It’s like the first flutter on the way to your big college dreams.

So what we’re trying to say is that just like how the small action of a butterfly flapping its wings can cause a chain of events that leads to a large-scale hurricane halfway around the world, one dollar can be the thing that sets in motion the events that lead to your awesome dreams.

Plus, apply for your dollar, and you’re also eligible for the $2,500 scholarship!
