Important Information for Receiving your Scholarship Award

Now that scholarship awards night is over, senior scholarship recipients MUST go back to their Dollars for Scholars profile to accept and acknowledge their award. This should be done when the student has decided which institution they are going to attend, knows institution's address and the start date of classes, and has been assigned a student ID number.

When you have this information, the student needs to log back in to their profile on ballard.dollarsforscholars.org. Then, in the lower left corner, under the "My Scholarships" heading, choose the "accept your scholarships" tab. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page to the "Scholarships I've Been Awarded" section. At the bottom you will see the scholarship you received and you must click the "accept scholarship" button. From this page, you will be directed to a scholarship acknowledgement form that will ask for information about the college you will be attending. Accepting and acknowledging your scholarship is a mandatory step so we know that you are indeed going on to post-secondary education and where to send your scholarship money. There is a PDF form with these instructions available to you by clicking the help button in your student profile and looking under the "How to accept my scholarships" question.

If you have questions about delayed entry into college for military service or another reason, you must contact Ballard's Dollars for Scholars committee ASAP but no later than October 1st of 2017 at ballarddfs@gmail.com to keep them updated on your plans. If you have done that step and the Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars has confirmed that you qualify for this deferment, you have until December 31, 2021, to claim your scholarship should you choose to delay entry into college.
