Scholarship Provider Guidelines

If you’re interested in listing your scholarship on Scholarships.com, please be sure that your organization and its website meet the following the guidelines:

  1. The scholarship does not charge an application fee or serve as a means to generate revenue for the scholarship provider.
  2. The scholarship information page must not display advertisements, toll free numbers associated with paid services, pop-up windows, chat windows or other offers.
  3. During the application process, students must not be prompted to enter a social security number.
  4. During the application process, students must not be prompted to enter credit card information.
  5. Scholarship URL must link directly to provider’s scholarship page.
  6. Scholarship URL must be operational and stable. If the site is down, we are unable to review the site and students are unable to apply.
  7. The scholarship must be associated with a legitimate, verifiable (no PO Boxes), U.S. mailing address.
  8. Scholarship must be filterable and offer an award of reasonable substance and/or frequency for the amount of work that is required of them.

This information or a link to this information must be on the page of the URL provided by the scholarship provider, referenced above.
  10. Scholarship listing must not be a duplicate of one that is already listed with Scholarships.com. Please be sure to retain all information you receive from Scholarships.com upon successful completion of the listing process to ensure you do not attempt to submit a new listing the following year.
  11. Contact information, including address, phone number and email must be easily accessible to students for potential inquires about the scholarship and rules thereof.
  12. Scholarship provider must provide Scholarships.com with a contact email address from the organizations domain name. For example, admin@examplescholarship.org. It is the scholarship provider’s responsibility to ensure they are reachable by Scholarships.com.
  13. We strongly recommend whitelisting the Scholarships.com domain to ensure the aforementioned.

If your scholarship meets these guidelines, please submit the scholarship information online using our simple and easy scholarship submission form.
