Payment Information

How You Will Receive the Scholarship

We will email you in August to confirm where you will be attending college, and the amount you've been awarded per term. 

Funds can be used for tuition, fees, housing, food, books, transportation and personal expenses as detailed in the cost of attendance.

Your scholarship check will be sent directly to the financial aid office at your college ten days prior to the start of the academic year. 

Please allow processing time for the college/university to apply the scholarship funds to your student account and revise your financial aid. In some cases, the funds may not be applied to your account until after the start of the term. Please follow-up with your college/university’s financial aid office to determine the timing of the scholarship payment.

Your scholarship will be divided equally over the number of terms of enrollment at your college/university. You must be enrolled full-time and meet your college's Satisfactory Academic Progress policy in order to receive the funding.

If you are not enrolled full-time at the start of the term, your scholarship funding will be delayed until the matter has been resolved. Generally, Leadership 1000 scholarship recpients must be enrolled full time each term. As a general rule, when students do not enroll fulltime, their award is prorated to reflect their enrollment status. However, if you are planning to enroll in less than 12 credits for a term, please contact us.
