Emails to newly awarded National Scholars will be sent from ISTS
tomorrow, Thursday 4/25!
Please find your awardees/new scholars in your applicant or PC Scholar reports in the ISTS portal and start reaching out to welcome them and offer assistance.
We ask that you wait until Friday to begin any outreach to new awardees. We want to ensure that the awardees/non-awardees hear from us first and this will give applicants time to receive and open their emails.
If applicants reach out and ask why they did not receive the award,
TheDream.US refrains from giving any details (e.g., ineligibility, low score, etc.). If you are asked, you can simply state: “
The National Scholarship is a highly selective scholarship program with applicants from many states. Their funds are limited and this means that many accomplished applicants are not selected.” You can also add encouragement and support for students on continuing their college journey.
