Find the Right Fit
Explore your college matches.
How do you know when you’ve found your career and not just a job “to make ends meet?” Start with exploring what you want to do, what you could do, and where you might find the education you need.
Encourage takes your preferences—like affordability, social fit, and majors—to customize your college matches. Find the right school that will set you up for your dream career. Save schools you’re interested in, and understand critical information like majors, acceptance rates, costs and outcomes.
Find Financial Assistance
Match with scholarships.
Answer simple questions about your preferences, priorities about affordability, and other interests, and we’ll match you to your best-fit scholarship opportunities.
When we say scholarships, we’re talking about free money for school you do not need to pay back. There is a lot to learn, and college financial aid packages can be as unique as you are, so let’s simplify this together.
Information for Educators
Educators, thank you. The influence you have, and the role you play in helping shape your students’ futures is extraordinary. One of our biggest priorities is to further empower high schools and educators with resources that help their students envision, plan for, and realize postsecondary successes. We see you.
We believe education is the catalyst for individual success and community transformation, and our goal is to create a postsecondary planning experience that leads to student success for all learners. Let’s Work Together.
We know that students develop and learn through a variety of activities, tasks, and relationships. This becomes even more important as students plan for life after high school. myOptions Encourage empowers and equips educators with student’s interests and post-graduation plans to support informed conversations when they connect with students. Our tools and technologies are not meant to replace human interaction by any means; we are simply trying to help equip educators and make their jobs a tiny bit easier.
