Don't Miss Scholarship Opportunities!

While we do our best to keep our users informed of deadlines, extensions and new awards on a regular basis, you could be missing out on some very valuable scholarship information even as you read this. Do you have an email account with one of the following providers?

  • Gmail - Mark our email as "important" to make sure you don't miss important deadlines and new scholarships!
  • Yahoo! - Whitelist Scholarships.com to make sure you get the information you came to us for!
  • Hotmail - Make sure the folks at Microsoft aren't standing between you and valuable scholarship info!
  • AOL - Log in to your AOL account today and make sure they aren't blocking our valuable emails!

If you do (or even if you use a different email service), the information Scholarships.com is sending could be getting mislabeled as "Junk" or "Spam." This is problematic for several reasons – number one being the possibility of free money for college passing you by!

It’s understandable (and smart!) that you want to protect your computer from viruses, hackers, spyware and other online tomfoolery so we have a few solutions for you without compromising your overall security: Whitelist our domain, add us to your safe list or, to use a term popularized by Gmail, mark Scholarships.com as "important." To do this, click the empty importance marker next to our name in your message list so that it turns yellow and Gmail will learn that emails from Scholarships.com contain information you always want to see. Pretty cool, huh?

These steps take only a few minutes but they will save you so much time and frustration because they ensure you will never miss an email from us, thus increasing the amount of scholarships and financial aid options you are aware of. These days, every penny counts when you’re trying to pay for school – your educational future is important to Scholarships.com so make sure our assistance is just as important to you!
