It is very important that you follow the steps below hen applying for a scholarship:

Sept 1:     Download the sample application before attempting to apply for a scholarship so you know what information to have available when you sit down to apply.  Allow at least one (1) hour to fill out your first application so you can complete it before hitting send and print.  This is the only way to save your information.  Once you hit send and print, the first page of your application cannot be changed. 

Sept 1:    First go to the application at the top titled "Begin Application Process Here!"  You MUST complete the section above financial aid before hitting send.  After hitting send, that section cannot be changed.  The rest of the application can be added to or changed, just save again and always go back to the most recent application.  When this application is complete, you can then click on any application that you are qualified for to apply.

Step 2:     Double click on the scholarship below to read the criteria of the scholarship to see if you are eligible to apply.  Only apply for the scholarships which you qualified.  If you do not meet the criteria of the scholarship, your application will be disqualified.


Step 4:   Use the "Search Scholarships" on the left side of WEB page to search scholarships by GPA and school.  This will narrow the list of scholarships you might be eligible to apply for.

 

Step 5:   The first time you apply for a scholarship, you must create a new account.  Make sure your e-mail address is correct.

 

Step 6:    Fill out all information on the application, then hit Send and Print (at the end of the application).   Make sure that the application is complete before hitting Submit and Print.  If your application is not complete, the application will be disqualified.  Hitting Send and Print will save your information so you can easily fill out additional scholarship applications.  It is important that you hit Send and Print for every scholarship you apply for.  Allow a minimum of one (1) hour to complete your first application.

 

Step 7:    Print the application(s).  Sign the application(s) and attach all the required information and turn in to   your high school Career Center or mail to the Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation by the deadline date to be official.  Be sure the application is signed in BOTH places or the application will be disqualified.  Please be sure to include information requested for each scholarship such as:  transcripts, personal statement, signed letter(s) of recommendation, and/or essay as indicated on the scholarship criteria.
