Scholarship Payments

IN ORDER TO RECEIVE YOUR SCHOLARSHIP PAYMENT, YOU MUST SUBMIT 2 DOCUMENTS USING THE NEW PAYMENT PORTAL (THANK YOU LETTER AND CLASS SCHEDULE)!!

The portal will be accessible May 1st through December 31st of each year.

To access the portal, scholarship winners will use their email as their login. Inside the portal, scholarship winners can do all the following:

  • Update their contact information.
  • View their scholarship’s terms.
  • Obtain their donor’s contact information to write them a thank you note.
  • Upload a pdf or picture of their thank you note(s).
  • Upload a pdf of their fall college class schedule.

Most students download a copy of their class schedule using their student login on their college’s website after they enroll in classes. Class schedules should include ALL the following information:

  • Student’s name
  • School’s name
  • List enrolled classes
  • List total number of credits

Students will have the ability to upload documents at different times. They can write their thank you note(s) during the spring or early summer and then come back and upload their class schedule later by clicking “Save as Draft” after uploading their thank you note. If they upload both documents at the same time, they will click “Mark Complete” to indicate they have completed both tasks.

After documents have been uploaded for each scholarship awarded, the Foundation will review them and then issue a scholarship check. The check will be made payable to the student and their school and mailed to their home address. Once receiving their scholarship check, the student needs to endorse the back of it and submit it to their school’s business office to be credited to their student account.

Scholarships Awarded in a Previous Year with Payments in the Current Year:

Previous year’s scholarship winners will also use the new Award-Payment Portal. For winners of scholarships awarded prior to 2022, only scholarships with remaining payments will appear in the portal, and the number of download areas in the portal will be the same as the number of remaining payments in their scholarship term.

Previous year winners are requested to upload their transcript as well as their class schedule. However, there is only one area provided for class schedules in the first payment area. If possible please upload a transcript that includes their upcoming fall class schedule on it.

Please email Kristina Werner at kwerner@elkhornfoundation.org with questions regarding the scholarship payment process.
