Frequently Asked Questions

Can I send you a copy of my transcript?
No. Every college is different, but most transcripts do not show that you are currently enrolled into college. This is why we’re requesting only an enrollment verification letter or class schedule that shows you’re currently enrolled for the Fall 2016 semester.

How can I get a copy of an enrollment verification letter?
Please contact your college’s registrar’s office.

I don’t have access to a scanner. Can I mail documents to you?

I’m having trouble submitting my application using the form. It’s saying the file size is too big. What can I do?
If the form does not accept your proof of enrollment document, please attach a screenshot instead. As a last resort, email your application to idefinesuccess1@gmail.com.

I’m an uprising senior in high school. Can I still apply?
No, sorry. However, you can apply for the scholarship next year.

When will I be notified whether or not I won?
Only the winners will be contacted.
