  • Guarantee a minimum donation of $10,000 per year.
  • Follow Scholarship America branding and graphic standards when using the Scholarship America name or logo.
  • Only use the Scholarship America name or logo within the geographic area that is stated in a written agreement (e.g., local usage vs. national usage).
