The Education Foundation just released it's new Scholarship Submission(s) Portal! It can be found at http://educationfdn.org/scholarship-submissions-portal. Use this link to submit scholarship applications to The Education Foundation. As a reminder, there are 5 required forms for each candidate (click on each to get the latest form):

Be sure these forms are completed in their entirety before submission!

User's Testimony: 
"Last week, I had several scholarship applications to submit for review.  It was my first interaction with the new scholarship portal!  I wanted to let you know how very clean and user friendly the portal is and that it will make application submission a much more accurate process for me and my staff.
With the new process, I will feel very comfortable with any of my committee members submitting our applications moving forward as I know that none of us will want to send an application that is not fully complete.  The way each document has to be reviewed, saved, and uploaded will help to reduce these types of errors tremendously.
It is possible that many users may not be as excited about the new portal as I am, but it is a great system for me!"
