Online scholarship applications are here! myScholarships officially launched March 1 and it’s going to make the scholarship application process way easier for DCCCD students.
Save Time by Filling Out Scholarship Applications Online
Instead of filling out paper form after paper form, you’ll fill out one secure online scholarship form. You’ll save time you would have spent getting hand cramps from writing the same things down over and over, and we’ll now be better able to match you up with as many scholarship opportunities as possible.
To get started, visit the myScholarships page of the Foundation website and fill out the online scholarship application. Once you’ve finished the application, you’ll be automatically matched to opportunities for which you’re eligible based on the criteria you meet. This might include academic excellence, financial need, personal achievement, leadership or other characteristics.
Some scholarships might also require more information beyond eligibility, such as an essay or answers to supplemental questions. The online scholarship application system will be able to inform you of that, too – and you’ll even be able to submit that information directly through the online form. A keyword search is also available for you to explore all available scholarships.
Pro tip: Need a letter of recommendation? Don’t wait until the last minute. Make sure to give the person recommending you plenty of time to write your letter.
The application period for Fall 2016 scholarships is March 1 – June 1. Don’t miss your chance to earn free money (yes, FREE MONEY) for college!
