Turning Started Applications into Completed - National Round Closes Feb 28!

With less than 2 weeks before the round closes, we need to push those who applied to submit and complete their applications. 

As we've shared in the past, here are what we've learned from you all that works to turn these applicants to Scholars: 
  1. Send applicants emails and/or texts reminding them of the deadline and encouraging them to finish
  2. Work with current Scholars or staff to call the applicants and see if they need any help
  3. Invite applicants on campus and hold a workshop to review applicant's essays

You can access your college's applicant information in your ISTS Portal. Instructions can be found here: https://www.thedream.us/for-partner-colleges/

If you experience any technical issues with the ISTS site, please email our dedicated PC helpdesk: TheDream.US_Support@applyISTS.com
