Things You Need to Know About Your AwardSpring Application

  1. Save the AwardSpring user name and password you create. (The password must be at least seven characters and contain at least one upper case, one lower case, one number, and one special character.)

That will take you to the screen that indicates the applications you are eligible to apply for. Complete the additional questions for the scholarship, award, grant, or internship application. Click "Submit."
  3. Scholarship applicants must submit an electronic copy of your transcript(s). Official or unofficial transcript copies are acceptable at the time of application.
  4. AwardSpring will ask you for information about your recommenders and will send an email to request secure, confidential submission of your recommendation letters. Make sure your recommenders are aware of the deadline for receipt of all recommendations is one week after your cycle's deadline.
  5. You may save your work and complete your application(s) at any time before the cycle deadline.
  6. Applications close at 4:00 p.m. CT on the date of the cycle's deadline.
