Step 1: Scholarship Program Setup
We work with you to plan your program based on your objectives – from creating application materials to promoting your scholarship program.
Step 2: Custom Program Design
We design and implement your application materials. We offer electronic applications and provide a program website branded with your company’s identity.
Step 3: Application Process
We take care of the process for you, from creating, receiving, processing and screening all scholarship applications, and checking for eligibility or missing information.
Step 4: Selection and Award Notification
As a neutral party, we objectively choose recipients according to your program criteria. After receiving approval from you, we notify recipients and manage all the details including award disbursement, providing customer service to both you and the recipients.
Step 5: Yearly Renewals
Offering renewal awards helps see students through from start to finish. We inform students of criteria needed to receive a renewal and provide any customer service needed to them.
Step 6: Success Tracking
We track data for you to determine the success of your scholarship program. We send you custom reports with the exact stats you need to help keep you informed.
Costs and timelines for managing scholarships
Scholarship America offers free consultations. One of our experienced representatives will consult with you about your program goals and answer your scholarship questions at no cost to you.
We recognize you have unique goals for your scholarship program and we will work with you to create your customized program design. The management fee is determined when your program design is established, so you pay only for the services you need.
The total implementation time of a scholarship program is dependent on the criteria required to manage the program. Once the program details are finalized and approved by an organization, the implementation time is generally 4-12 weeks.
