How does it work?
This is a 3 part application process:
- Complete profile & submit head shot (profile remains on file for 1 year or until graduation date whichever comes first)
- Once your school's campaign has POPPED (reached $250 goal) students whose profiles are on file and donors are notified of the current deadline to submit completed entry. Students can submit their transcripts and move to step 3 of the application by the deadline.
- Students create 15-30 second video clip on how they plan to pay it forward
When is the deadline?
Deadlines are rolling and are determined by the date that the campaign POPPED. It is the responsibility of the student to check websites, social media sites, to see current deadline. Ideally deadlines will be 3 weeks after campaign has POPPED*
How often are scholarships awarded?
Our goal is to award scholarships every other month. This depends solely on the success of the participating college/ university's orders towards their specific campaign. This is a rolling scholarship. Scholarships are awarded as long as there is money raised for the specific college/university campaign. Students are encouraged to apply year round. Their profile will remain on file for 1 year. Once students complete the application profile portion, participating students and donors will be notified that their campaign has "POPPED", meaning it has reached the $250 goal and the students can move forward with the additional portions of the application process.
How much of the proceeds go towards the campaign?
