  1. Hi, what is troubling for us is having no response, acknowledgment or timeline to expect responses. Our son has applied for countless scholarships. We have heard from 1 that he won. He’s got a 3.45 GPA, former scholar athlete and he’s gifted AP student with plenty of community service hours. He’s an excellent writer who serves as the sports editor of his school’s yearbook. Talent and eligibility aren’t the issue. Even if he’s been turned down for greater talent and higher scores, how would we ever know?

    • First off, congratulations to your son for winning one of the scholarships he has applied for. As for hearing back, it is really up to the scholarship provider whether they notify everyone who applied or not. Some of the scholarships provide timelines on their websites (deadline, date they will choose winner, date they will award, etc.), while others do not. My favorite scholarship providers are the ones that put the winner information on their website, as well as an explanation as to why the winner(s) was chosen, or the actual entry so that others can see what they were looking for.

      It is unfortunate not all scholarship providers share information. However, if your son sees a notification date on their website, add that to the calendar to check back. Again, sometimes they will put the information on the website. If not, it is okay to contact them by email to ask if they have selected a winner. Some will be very happy to share information. When I served on scholarship committees, I would answer questions for students who were not selected and gave tips as to what they may do in the future.

      Again, congratulations on the scholarship win. I wish him more luck in winning scholarships!
