SMC Foundation 2014-15 E-Scholarship Application System: Coming Soon!
SMC Financial Aid and Scholarships is currently implementing the new Academic Works E-Scholarship Application system. We anticipate that the system will be up and running and accessible through Corsair Connect in December 2014.
The new E-Scholarship application system has many features, including the following:
· Students will complete the SMC Scholarship Application on-line through the SMC E-Scholarship system. No paper application will be required.
· Students will be able to submit their personal statement on-line through E-Scholarship.
· Students can list the names and emails of individuals who will be writing the letters of recommendation.
· Those writing recommendation letters will submit letters electronically through the SMC E-Scholarship system.
· Students will be able to see if their recommendation letters have been submitted and if their application is complete—through E-Scholarship.
· Students can check for additional Foundation scholarships through the SMC system that they are potentially eligible to apply for—by submitting additional essays or materials.
What can you do now?
· Start writing your personal scholarship statement.
· Start contacting teachers, counselors, and others about writing a letter of recommendation.
