How You’ll Receive the Scholarship

We will email you in August to confirm that your funding will be sent to the school you indicated on your application form and the amount you’ve been awarded per term.

Your scholarship check will be sent directly to the financial aid office at your college. Your college will receive the funds on the following dates and terms:

Fall Quarter/Semester term: August 14th, 2017

Winter term: December 18th, 2017

Spring Quarter/Semester term: March 5th, 2018

Please allow processing time for the college/university to apply the scholarship to your student account and revise your award letter. In some cases, the funds may not be applied to your account until after the start of the term. You will not be dropped from classes if the funding isn’t in your account on the first day of class. Generally the tuition deadline is a couple of weeks into the term. Please follow-up with your college/university’s financial aid office to determine when the scholarship payment will be applied to your account.

Your scholarship will be divided equally over the number of terms of enrollment at your college/university, and sent to the financial aid office at the start of each term. You must meet all the  requirements of the scholarship in addition to meeting your college’s Satisfactory Academic Progress policy in order for your college to award you the funding.

Your scholarship will be awarded as follows, based on the amount of funding for which you are eligible. This amount will be communicated to you via email in August.

If you are not enrolled at a minimum of 6 or more credits when the college applies the funding to your account at the start of fall quarter, your scholarship will be forfeited. However, you will be able to re-apply for the scholarship as a new applicant the next year if you meet all of the application eligibility requirements at that time.

If you are planning to enroll in 6-11 credits for fall, winter, or spring term, please contact us ahead of time to let us know how many credits you will be enrolling. This will avoid any delays in your scholarship payment. Please note that in order to receive a partial scholarship disbursement you must be enrolled in at least 6 credits.

If you are approved to receive an increase to your scholarship, we will send you a confirmation email listing the amount of your scholarship per term, and confirming which term your scholarship increase will take place. Please note that submitting increase documents during a term does not guarantee the increase will take effect that term.
