Setting up BBID to access My Scholarship Central

Follow the directions below to set up your Blackbaud ID to access My Scholarship Central.

Go to

Click Sign In in the upper right-hand corner

Select the correct tab – either Applicants and Administrators or References and Reviewers

Click Continue with Blackbaud ID

Click Sign Up (next to Need an account?)

Enter a password – make sure to read the password requirements. Enter your name and click Sign Up.

Only use the Signup  with Google or Apple buttons if that is the email address you used to initially sign up for My Scholarship Central, or it was the email used to invite you to be a reference or reviewer.

Once you sign up, you will get an email with a confirmation code. You must enter that confirmation code.  If you do not get the confirmation code, contact [email protected]

You will eventually be prompted to sign up for multi-factor authentication.  You will decide if you want to receive a confirmation code via text or authenticator app each time you log in.

Once you have completed the BBID sign up process, you should be logged in to your previous My Scholarship Central account.  If that is not the case, contact [email protected]

If you forget your password, click the Forgot Password? link
