Scholarship Management

You’ve decided to list your scholarship on Scholarships.com (great choice, by the way!) but what happens after you submit your criteria and contact information? Can you change the deadline? Expand your applicant pool? Request additional materials? In short, yes. The Scholarships.com team does everything in its power to get your scholarship information in the hands of your ideal candidates and we’ll even be your guides on everything from copy editing to technical support for the affordable price of FREE.

How We Operate

As soon as you click the “Submit Scholarship Information” button on the List Your Scholarship page, your specifications are placed into a queue to be reviewed by one of our team members. We inspect each entry meticulously, taking a fine-toothed comb to spelling, grammar, punctuation, links, deadlines and all other applicable criteria. The more information you include – think: majors, grade point averages and extracurricular activities – the better, as we can further tailor your listing to produce the most viable applicants.

If you’re wondering why your college scholarship doesn’t appear on our site instantaneously, we have a good reason. While we want you to start getting applications as soon as possible, we’re focused on the quality of those applicants rather than just the quantity. As such, our vetting process takes time and the results you’ll receive are the best out there. In the end, you’ll have a diverse group of applicants to select your award recipient from – all of which will be worthy of winning your scholarship. And if they aren't the best fit, just further edit your criteria...or let us know and we'll increase the specificity.

Making Changes

Making Changes

Once we’ve approved your scholarship, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail with a scholarship ID and security key. When used together, these two codes will allow you to update anything about your scholarship at any time. If you decide to extend the application deadline or would prefer students mail their applications instead of submitting them electronically, for example, log on to our site and edit the necessary information for yourself.

Of course, any time you make a change to your listing, our review process begins again. Why? While we must review again, it is typically much quicker this time around since we have already vetted you; by reediting your information, factual accuracy remains intact and your scholarship listing on our site will continue to produce only the most appropriate applicants.

Let Us Help

Scholarships.com has been matching scholarship providers with students (and vice versa) since 1999 so we know what it takes to get your scholarship targeted maximum exposure. We may have more than 2.7 million scholarship opportunities on our site but if you have a question about your individual listing, you won’t be treated like a number. Just contact us and one of our team members will get back to you as soon as possible with a mutually beneficial solution. We’ll also relay comments and questions posted by our users to clarify any confusion.

If this is your first time listing a scholarship with us or if you’re not necessarily tech savvy, we’re more than happy to walk you through the process from beginning to end. Chances are you’ll gain a greater understanding for what we do and how Scholarships.com can help you fund students’ educations for years to come.
