  • Select a unique email and password for your student log-in. Please keep your information confidential. We will communicate with you via email regarding your scholarship application, so please check it frequently. If you forget your log-in password, you may reset it during the log-in phase however, we recommend using a desktop computer to complete this task.
  • After you have successfully completed the scholarship matching questionnaire, be sure to click the checkbox by each scholarship you wish to apply for. You must click the "Save to my Applications" button to add them to your account profile. Please note, you must also complete and submit each application form to apply for multiple scholarships (if applicable). The information will pre-populate from one application to the next, however you must answer any additional questions or attach relevant documentation for select scholarships. You must click the "Submit" button for each application to successfully apply.
  • Keep the required college/financial documents in a centralized safe location. These include but are not limited to: Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), College Acceptance Letter, College Financial Aid Award Letter, and a copy of your transcript from your most recently attended institution.
  • Print off copies of all of your submitted applications. We also recommend storing them in a safe location. The HCEF will not be liable for any incomplete applications caused by transmittal errors, communication errors, or other submission conflicts.
Documented Community Service must be on organization letterhead verifying your name, brief description of activity, hours volunteered and date of volunteering. This document will be a required upload with your online renewal application. Current scholarship recipients need at least 4 hours of community service to renew their scholarship. Please make sure that the organization that you volunteer for gives YOU the letter and YOU upload it into your renewal application. Do not send it to us or have them send it to us. It must be uploaded into your application.  *If you have completed volunteer service at separate times/locations, please be sure to combine all documentation into one PDF file before uploading your community service information into your online application.
