About Collegiate and Matching Partners
Your sponsored award is administered by Scholarship America. Our network of Collegiate Partners are a group of colleges around the nation that agree to help you get the most out of your award—including Matching Partners, who will in many cases provide a matching award to increase the amount of your scholarship. Please read this notice carefully.
Getting the Maximum Benefit From Your Award
The school named in your award notification letter is a Scholarship America Matching Partner. That means they have committed to match part or all of your scholarship award in order to cover unmet need. (If no unmet need exists, no matching funds need to be provided.)
Matching award policies vary among colleges in the amount of the match per award and the total dollars budgeted each year. In many cases, the matching funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Your school may require you to demonstrate financial need or meet other qualifications to be eligible for the match. For your school’s specific requirements, please consult the Collegiate Partners Directory.
