Award Spring Scholarship FAQ’s
Why do I not see a save button?
The AwardSpring system automatically saves your answers as you complete the application.
Can I apply for more than one Grayson College Foundation Scholarship?
When completing the online scholarship application, answer and complete each question carefully and accurately, as this determines scholarship eligibility. Some scholarships need additional requirements, so be sure to review your “Dashboard” and answer those questions. Do not leave any questions blank. An incomplete scholarship application cannot be submitted through the AwardSpring system.
Do all scholarships have the same eligibility requirement(s)?
No. Each scholarship has specific eligibility requirement(s) that were defined by the donor when the scholarship was established. Eligibility requirements are stated for each individual scholarship, so be sure to read the requirements carefully.
Is there a deadline to apply for a Grayson College Foundation Scholarship?
Yes. The priority deadline to apply for a GC Foundation scholarship is March 20, 2020, when the initial awarding period will take place. Submitting your completed scholarship application by the priority deadline will provide you the best opportunity to be considered for and/or awarded a GC Foundation scholarship. The application will close on August 21, 2020 or when all scholarships have been awarded. If all scholarships have been awarded prior to the final deadline, the scholarship application will close until the next application period.
Can I apply for a Grayson College Foundation scholarship if I am an international student?
Yes. International students may apply for GC Foundation scholarships. Awards are made based on qualifications and eligibility criteria of the scholarships.
Who makes the award decisions?
The Grayson College Foundation Scholarship Committee reviews and evaluates each application and makes award recommendations based on the scholarship criteria.
Will I need to apply each year for a Grayson College Foundation Scholarship?
