Practice for the SAT Scholarship

About the Scholarship

A little practice goes a long way. With Official SAT Practice, focus on what you need most to prepare for the SAT. There are no time requirements—just take the first step to get ready for test day.

Students in the class of 2023 who complete at least one Timed Mini Section or one Diagnostic Quiz on Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy® will earn entries in monthly drawings for $500 and $40,000.

As soon as you complete a Timed Mini Section or Diagnostic Quiz, you’ll be automatically entered into monthly drawings:

  • $500 Scholarships: BigFuture will award $500 scholarships to students who practice for the SAT until October 2022. We'll select 50 winners who practice every month.
  • $40,000 Scholarships: BigFuture will award 2 $40,000 scholarships every month until February 2023. By practicing for the SAT now, you’ll automatically earn one entry for every $40,000 drawing. Complete more steps on BigFuture to get more chances at $40,000.
