CLICK HERE TO ENTER:
What internet browser do you recommend I use?
Can I email or fax my application?
Can I apply for more than one scholarship at a time?
Do I have to complete my application all at once?
Is there a spell check feature?
What are character limits?
There are limits on the amount of text you can submit. You will see a character counter displayed below the entry field. This will actively tell you how many characters you have entered and will let you know when you are approaching the limit. You will not be able to save a draft of your application if you exceed the character limit. You are not required to reach the character limit!
Will you follow-up with me if my application needs clarification?
Yes, but we also suggest that you ask someone to review your application before submission so prevent the need for further clarification.
What time do I need to submit my application by?
All applications must be submitted by 11:59pm (CST) on the day of the deadline. You will not be able to submit your application after that.
What file formats will be accpeted for attachments?
Acceptable formats include .pdf and .jpeg. No other file types will be accepted.
How should I name my files?
You should give each file a name that identifies with you and the type of required document it represents. For example, a file representing your high school transcript could be named “First Name-HS Transcript”. Do not use any symbols except for a period or a dash, as symbols can interfere with the upload process.
Is there a size limit for file attachments?
The maximum size for all attachments varies. If your attachment is larger than the allotted space, please contact us for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 219.326.2471.
I do not have the required attachments in electronic form. Can I make other arrangements to deliver them to you?
Help! Why did I lose my edits?!
If you stay on one page for an extended period of time without saving, your account may “time out” without warning. Generally, the software will auto save for you, but you may lose some information if you have not saved periodically.
– Save your application often
– Cut and paste your application answers after each question into a Word document to save as backup.
Re-loading your internet page, as sometimes the browser will cache an older version of your page.
Logging out, waiting a few minutes, and then logging back in and re-opening your application.
Why am I having problems uploading files?
Sometimes the problem can be a corrupt file. Try saving a new, renamed version of the document. Try saving your file as a different type. For instance, if you scanned a document to create a (.jpg) file, try saving it in a (.pdf) format instead.
How do I print my application for my records?
If you would like a paper copy of your application for your own records, login to the application portal and choose the Application Packet link. This will create a PDF of your application. You can print or save this document. You will always have access to your application by logging back into the application portal, even after you submit it.
