Once you set-up your profile in our application system, you will have to complete 5 steps BEFORE you can submit your scholarship application for consideration by the College Fund:
· Scholarship Application
· Education History
· Extracurricular Activities
· Honors and Distinctions
In the first step, Scholarship Application, you’ll provide information like your grade point average (GPA), school you plan to attend, major and the year you expect to graduate. This is the section where you will answer the reflective questions, and you can provide identify as a descendant of a boarding school survivor and provide an essay for scholarship consideration.
You can save your work in this section as a “draft” or “mark as complete,” and return you to the application dashboard
In the remaining four steps, you’ll add information about yourself like schools you have attended, activities at school, church or community, and any awards or distinctions you have received.
In each step, you’ll click on the green “+New Item” button to add a new entry. Include all high schools, GED programs or colleges – even if you did not graduate. Under the Activities and Honors sections, add as many new items as you like. You must add at least one item in each step.
When you’re done, just click the white “CLOSE” button at the top right, which will return you to your application dashboard.
The last section, RESUME, is optional – but we encourage you to complete it if you are interested in internship or career development opportunities.
Once you complete each of these steps, return to the Scholarship Application step, and click the blue “Mark Complete” button if you haven’t done so already. This will return you to the application dashboard, where the large green “Submit Application” button will now be available at the top right of the page.
You must click on the green “Submit Application” button to have your application reviewed by the College Fund.
