There are three reasons you'll love our new scholarship application process:

 

1. Online scholarship application for Temecula Dollars for Scholars.

The new online process means we can do away with paper scholarship applications for good - and you can do all of your applying online! All you need to do is create your personal Student Profile! You'll fill in all the same basic information as you would on a paper scholarship application, and you'll be able to store and update things like your GPA, extracurricular activities and letters of recommendation throughout your high school and college career-which means you'll only have to fill it out once, for potentially multiple opportunities!

2. One Student Profile -  LOTS of applications!

By filling out a Student Profile, you'll see any and all of our chapter's awards that you qualify for - and you can apply for them by answering just a few additional questions with a couple of clicks! And that's not all! Across the nation, Scholarship America, our parent organization, is working with partners to add new scholarships to the scholarship database. Any time your profile matches the criteria for a new scholarship, no matter who's giving it out or where it's from, you'll be able to apply without filling out anything else!! This means lots of opportunities for nationally offered scholarships plus all of our local scholarships!!

IMPORTANT!!!

You will need to return and check your dashboard FREQUENTLY as new scholarships become available on an on-going basis. We do not want you to miss out on any opportunities!

3. Much more than just scholarships.

Your Student Profile and the Student Dashboard, where you fill out and update your information, provides a single source for a wide array of information you need to know. As a student, you'll have free access to a wealth of financial aid and college success tools and resources; and, you will even be able to export a resume based on your high school accomplishments!
