To apply for Northampton Dollars for Scholars scholarships and to be able to see scholarship opportunities from Scholarship America's partners nationwide:

   ~ Log in and create or update your Basic Scholarship Application Student Profile.  This basic profile will be used to establish your eligibility for not only local scholarships but all available scholarships in the Scholarship America database. Your profile can be updated/edited at any time, but be aware, once you submit it for consideration for a particular scholarship you will not be able to make changes.

   ~ It is important to fill out all sections completely and verifiably, and to make sure to give thoughtful attention to the essay questions included in the profile.  These essays will help us to get to know what makes you special and why you are a good candidate for a scholarship award.

   ~ Financial information is NOT required to be eligible for Northampton Dollars for Scholars scholarships.   However, some scholarships in the Scholarship America database give special consideration to students with financial need, so make sure to fill out the "Parent/Financial Info" section if you believe you might qualify for a need based award.

FAQs:
 

How long should the essay be? 

The essay should be keep to 150 words or less. Be succinct, but complete enough to convey your points to us.

 

What is required for a reference? 

Your personal reference can be submitted by a personal, school or work connection. The person you select as your reference will be sent an email with a short questionnaire, asking 8 questions that are answerable by clicking next to "very appropriate" to "not appropriate." They are provided with a space for a comment (which is not a requirement), and then must click the "submit" button. It can take as little as a minute or two.

 

Can the application be submitted before references are sent in? 

Yes. Do apply if your references have not yet been sent by your choice. If you have requested the reference there is no need to wait. At this point in the process, you should be able to see the scholarships that you match to. Make sure to SUBMIT the application after selecting the scholarships that you match up with.

 

What is the final step of application? 

Be sure to select all the scholarships that you are matched to and SUBMIT the application. Your application may say that your information is "100% complete," but your application is not finished until you click the SUBMIT button. You should then receive an email confirming that your application has been received.
