Submit your application

The scholarship cycle: apply in winter highlighted

Applications are usually due at the end of winter.

Finally! Time to apply.

Now that you have written your essays, it’s time to submit your application.

  1. Create account

    You’ll most likely submit your scholarship application through an online account or by paper. Create your account as soon as possible and save your passwords so you can log in later. Don’t leave this to the last minute, for it can take longer than imagined.

  2. Complete the application

    Make sure all required sections are filled out. Generally, you can do this far in advance of the deadline.

  3. Get references

    Collect your documents and ask for references.

  4. Double check and submit

    Read the application materials again to check for mistakes. Make sure all the required pieces are attached correctly. Click save or submit, and double-check that your application has been received. Before you click submit:

    • make sure required questions are answered
    • check your references are submitted
    • make sure each transcript has your name, GPA, and school name
    • everything looks the way you want it to look!

When should I finish my application?

It’s best to turn in your application at least three days before the deadline. This gives you several days to fix any mistakes and to make sure it was turned in correctly. Don’t wait until the final hour.

You did it! You can now say that you have applied for scholarships! That’s a big deal.
