FAQs

When is the best time to start applying for scholarships?

For majority of the scholarships on Scholar’s App, the best time to begin applying is approximately a month before the new semester. However, our team suggests you apply as soon as possible!

What is purpose of “profiles”? Why do I need to provide personal information?

Information from your profile is used to first, match you to scholarships you qualify for and next, auto-fill in parts of the scholarships that you decide to apply for. The more information on your profile, the less supplemental information you fill out later!

How does the scholarship “matching” process work? Will I only be able to view scholarships I qualify for?

Scholar’s App uses 14 categories to match students to scholarships eg. GPA, college attending, state of residency, etc. If a scholarship has more specific requirements, (Eg. a scholarship open to all high school seniors in Hawaii, but the recipient needs to be a part of a specific organization) we have “qualifying questions” that a student answers before being allowed to fill out that application. Our matching system will ensure an accurate match so that you only view scholarships you qualify for.

Why use Scholar’s App over other online scholarship services?

Scholar’s App is FREE for students!  We’ve worked tirelessly so you don’t have to. By making Scholar’s App easy to use, we’ve reduced the amount of time students spend searching and applying for scholarships by 60%.
