It is very important that you READ and FOLLOW the steps below when applying for a scholarship:

Please note that the current scholarship application reads 2017.  We are currently trying to fix this but at this time, you can apply on the current application and it will be accepted. 

Step 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. 

Step 2:    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 scholarship that you are qualified for to apply.

Step 3:     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 qualifiedIf you do not meet the criteria of the scholarship, your application will be disqualified.  We recommend that you download the criteria of each scholarship that you apply for so you have the required information to turn in with the application.

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.  If you do not have an e-mail address, complete one for yourself.  Do not use your parent's.

 Step 6:    Fill out all information on the application under "Begin Application Process Here", then hit Submit and Print (at the end of the application).   Make sure that the application is complete before hitting Submit and Print. Once you have completely filled out this application, you can go to any other scholarship that you qualify for and hit "apply" and all your information will be populated.  If your application is not complete, the application will be disqualified.  Hitting Submit and Print will save your information so you can easily fill out additional scholarship applications.  It is important that you hit Submit 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, essays, signed letter(s) of recommendation as indicated on the scholarship criteria.

 If you have problems or have questions, please check with the career center at your school or e-mail us at contact@elkgroversf.org.
