How Our AwardSpring Scholarship System Works

Student Information:

  • Students will complete one general application form online to apply for as many scholarships as they wish.
  • Students will automatically be matched to scholarships for which they are initially qualified.
  • For some scholarships, students will be asked to provide additional information or documents, as required for each scholarship.
  • New! Students will request their letters of referral online, rather than on paper. Two letters are required.
  • We recommend reading the Donor information to learn more about each scholarship and its sponsoring organization or family, or about the person whose memory is honored by the scholarship.

Sponsor Information:

  • Sponsor packets were mailed on December 24, 2016. If you did not receive one, please contact us.
  • By January 15, we need verification of the dollar amount of your offer, along with notification of changes to your selection criteria or customization of your scoring method.
  • Scholarship sponsors will review applications online.
  • Each reviewer will be given a password – up to as many reviewers as you require to make your decisions.
  • Sponsors can include a logo or photo on their profile page, along with a description of their organization or honoree. To view yours, go to http://nhsfoundation.awardspring.com, and DO NOT LOGIN. Click on Donors on the left.
  • Sponsors will receive most communications from NHSF via email, which saves time.
  • If you are not able to review applications online, please contact technical support or the Foundation and we will provide assistance.
