A brilliant 17-year-old girl named Jasmine Harrison has earned 4.5 million dollars worth of scholarship offers to 113 different universities in the United States.
Jasmine Harrison is a teen from Greensboro who graduated from The Academy, North Carolina in the United States with a 4.00 grade point. Her excellent performance earned her 4.5 million dollars worth of scholarships to 113 universities and colleges across the United States.
Out of the schools that accepted Jasmine, 26 were Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs). She was offered a full-ride scholarship to three historically Black colleges which are Edward Waters College, Mississippi Valley State University, and Bennett College.
She accepted the full ride from Bennet College as it is located in her hometown. Jasmine credited her family and school administrators who helped her with the application process.
“It was overwhelming at first because there were so many options. I could go anywhere, and discover who I am,” she said.
Jasmine told WFMY that the College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) College Application Week, enabled her to apply to a variety of state schools for free.
“On those late nights when I was filling out those applications with my mom and we just felt like we cannot do this, we just ended up singing gospel songs together to get through the night,” she said.

Jasmine’s mother, Bravena M. Armstrong said she originally wanted to apply to all of the colleges in Florida before she made up her mind to school nearby.
She stated that once the acceptances and financial aid awards started to roll in, she got more confident and decided to keep applying to more universities. “I felt if I can get into all of these, where else can I get in?” she said.
Jasmine was only rejected by two universities: the University of South Carolina and Seton Hall University, according to The Times. In addition to North Carolina and Florida schools, she applied to colleges in South Carolina, Maryland, and Colorado.
Jasmine plans to major in Biology during her time at Bennett University, all in hopes of becoming a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit nurse later.
