Scholarship Terms

  • You must formally accept your scholarship by logging into the portal and signing the required document(s) and upload a bill for the awarded school year. Once these two conditions have been met, the 101: Fund will send your scholarship payment to your college/university.

  • The 101: Fund sends scholarship payments directly to you school at the address you provide. 

  • The 101: Fund helps cover the gap that financial aid and other sources do not fund. If you receive more financial aid from your school in later years, the 101: Fund will adjust the amount sent to your school based on the remaining gap

  • Returning students may apply for additional funds in subsequent years. 

  • Returning students must still prove financial need, submit the required documentation, and demonstrate a cumulative 2.0 grade point average (GPA).

  • Failure to renew your scholarship for four consecutive semesters will result in the closing of your scholarship.
