Brief directions


After logging in and going to the Students & Parents page, open each section down the left hand column to set up your profile and to see each step of the process.


1)      Set up profile – this is the template that all Scholarship America affiliates use to determine eligibility. Remember the more information you enter, the more opportunities it will open.  It is not exclusive to one scholarship. You are “registering” with Scholarship America, not applying for a specific scholarship; those opportunities will be in your “My Scholarship News”.


2)      After completing the profile, click on the “My Scholarship News” to see eligibility for different scholarships, this should be checked periodically for new scholarships. Checking once a week is highly recommended.


3)      A new screen will appear showing those scholarships for which the applicant is eligible. Click on the individual scholarships in that section where the different requirements will be listed/accessed. This is also where you will click on “submit” to individually submit each scholarship application. It will not let you submit if the application does not have all required information (i.e. our custom question).
