    Thank you!!
    This is a compilation of large scholarship awards that are automatically awarded. The awards included in this list meet the following criteria:

    1. Awarded automatically based on GPA, SAT, ACT, and/or class rank
    2. At least Full Tuition/Full Ride in magnitude (or equivalent)
    3. Open to all US students, regardless of state residency, ethnicity, race, etc.
    4. No need-based requirement or component
    5. College must be accredited, public or non-profit private, 4-year degree-granting institution

    Key:

    Full Tuition: covers the cost of tuition for 4 years
    Full Ride: covers Tuition, Room, and Board for 4 years (may include other benefits as well)
    exp: stipend for experiential learning (internship, study abroad, etc., allowable uses vary by college)

    Where published, the application deadline for receiving the scholarships is included. Some deadlines are “Priority” deadlines, so awards after the deadline may still be possible.

    Some schools give awards on a first-come, first-served basis as funds are available. A notation is included for all schools with this caveat.

    Please add scholarships you are aware of in the same format as below.

    I didn't recheck those above, just copy/pasted. I'll go through Alabama if someone wants to take a couple of other states.

    I owe it to this very post for leading me to find a great university which I am currently attending on a large scholarship, and will be able to graduate debt free in 2 more years :) (Roll Tide!)

    The list does appear to be a bit out of date though; I can go through some states like @OHMomof2 as I have a sister who is a rising junior in HS and am searching for some scholarship opportunities for her.

    One I have noticed has changed is Louisiana Tech University is no longer giving a full ride to students with a 32 ACT/1400 SAT. Right now it appears you will get a $9,500 annual scholarship + OOS tuition waiver; which still covers tuition and fees + have some left over for Room/Board/Books/Misc. The requirements for that scholarship has been raised to 33 ACT + 3.75 GPA. They do have some lower requirement scholarships, the lowest of which that still covers tuition is the 'Outstanding Student' scholarship which appears to be for $6,500 annual; that one requires 31 ACT + 3.75 GPA

    University of Alabama-Birmingham
    OOS: http://www.uab.edu/students/paying-for-college/scholarships/act-gpa-based-scholarships-out-of-state
    IS:http://www.uab.edu/students/paying-for-college/scholarships/act-gpa-based-scholarships-alabama-residents

    Seems to me the highest OOS award is $15K and OOS tuition is $23k so they no longer offer full tuition, not instate either.

    So should be removed from this list.
