How do I apply for a scholarship?
Can I use my high school email address?
Do NOT use your high school email address. The email address used in the application will be the primary contact method throughout college if you receive a scholarship award. If needed, create a personal email account in gmail, yahoo, etc. for permanent personal use.
What are the requirements for references?
Some scholarships require reference letters. You should contact and confirm that that your references are willing to provide a POSITIVE reference before you list them as a reference. You will need their email address to enter into the application. Let them know that they should receive an email from GNWKCF with instructions to provide a confidential reference.
How should I approach my answers?
Let your personality shine and be thorough in your answers. Your responses are key to the award selection process.
What happens if I am awarded a scholarship?
Once you are awarded a scholarship, you must login to the scholarship portal to complete the required follow up steps. (Printable directions - click HERE.) Before the first scholarship payment can be released, you must:
- Accept the scholarship agreement.
- Provide a copy of your upcoming course schedule that includes: Your name, the school's name, and the total number of credit hours for which you are enrolled.
What if my scholarship is for multiple semesters?
If your scholarship is for multiple semesters, at the end of each semester you will need to login to the scholarship portal to provide your current cumulative GPA and upcoming course schedule (showing your name, the schools name, and total credit hours enrolled) before the next scholarship payment can be released.
What happens if I fail to meet the minimum scholarship criteria?
GNWKCF ensures each scholarship fund establishing documents are carefully followed. Students must meet the minimum scholarship criteria at the time of enrollment. If your scholarship is for more than one semester and you fail to meet the minimum requirements for renewal, you will be given a one semester probation period to improve your eligibility. If, at the end of the probation period, you still do not meet the minimum eligibility requirements, you will forfeit your scholarship.
What happens if I fail to complete the follow up steps?
Failure to complete the follow up steps may result in forfeit of your scholarship.
How is my scholarship award paid?
All scholarship awards are made payable to the post-secondary education institution that you state on your follow up form. Payments are generally sent to the student financial aid office approximately 10-15 days AFTER you submit all of the required follow up forms to accept your scholarship.
What happens to my scholarship if I need to take a semester off?
If you notify GNWKCF in writing prior to the start of the semester you plan to miss, we can grant a one semester deferral. If you do not notify GNWKCF prior to the start of that semester, you risk forfeiting your scholarship.
