No. The next step is to apply for specific scholarships and/or interest-free loans. There are no scholarships awarded from the General Application. To apply for a specific scholarship/interest-free loan, select “opportunities” in the blue bar at the top of the page. Then select “ours” to see the open opportunities. These are the scholarships that you can apply to directly on the website.

If you see an opportunity you would like to apply for, click the orange “apply” button. You will then answer additional questions that are for that opportunity only. Click the orange “submit” button on the bottom of the page when you have completed the application.

Click “opportunities” and “external” for a resource list of regional scholarships that do not use Scholarship Central to collect applications. You can link to the websites of these organizations for more information.

Each scholarship provider sets their own deadline. Review the scholarship details section for deadline information. The system will not accept any applications after 11:59 pm on the deadline date.
No, but you can check the status of any application by logging into the system. Your home page will show all of your applications. The status of each application is shown on the top right of that application’s box.
Yes, it is possible that more than one provider will select you as a recipient if you apply for multiple opportunities. We encourage students to apply for any and all opportunities for which they are eligible.
You will need your most recent transcript to complete the General Application. This can be an official or unofficial transcript.

Some opportunity applications might require one or more of the following documents:

  • Official transcript
  • Student Aid Report (SAR): The SAR is the document resulting from the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA may be filed online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.
  • Financial Aid Award Letter from the college you plan to attend.
  • ACT/SAT report (if not included on your high school transcript)
  • Resume
  • Acceptance letter from the college you plan to attend
You can check the status of any application by logging into the system. Your home page will show all your applications. The status of each application is shown on the top right of that application’s box. Each scholarship provider sets their own notification process. All providers will either email an award notification or send an award letter via the US Postal Service.
Not necessarily. If the opportunity description states that it is renewable, you will be awarded next year if you meet the renewal criteria. Most opportunity providers will require that you submit transcripts or complete a brief renewal application.
You can check on the status of your references by logging in to your account.

Click “references” in the blue bar at the top of the page.

If the status of a particular reference is “requested,” that means they have not submitted a reference. Click “resend” to send the request again.

Please follow-up with your reference personally and make sure they received the email request.
