Applicants should note that an official transcript must be included with your application, so please allow ample time for your college registrar to process your transcript request.
Q: Where can I get an application?
A: The application can be downloaded directly from this website. Click on the "Application" link at the right. Please note that the same application is used for both PAGE and SPAGE scholarships.
Q: What if I am eligible for more than one PAGE Foundation Scholarship? Can I apply for multiple scholarships?
A: Yes, but you need submit only one application. At the top of the application simply check the box for each scholarship you wish to be considered for.
Q: What transcript should I submit?
A: Please submit your most recent, official transcript.
- If you are an undergraduate student please send us your most recent cumulative transcript.
- If you are a graduate student and have completed at least one semester in your current program, please submit that transcript.
- If you are a graduate student and are just beginning a program of study you must send a cumulative transcript from your last program of study.
Q: When should I request my transcript?
A: Please allow ample time for your college registrar or official transcript service to process your request. Do not wait for the end of spring semester. If you wait for your spring semester transcript you will miss the scholarship application deadline. Late applications will not be scored.
Q: Can I print my grades from the college website and include that with my application?
A: No. Your transcript must be official and come from the college registrar or official transcript service. Loose transcripts are unofficial and will cause your application to be considered incomplete. Incomplete applications will not be scored.
Q: How do I submit my official transcript?
A: There are three ways you may submit your official transcript:
- You may include your transcript with the rest of your completed application in the original sealed envelope from the college registrar or official transcript service. Loose transcripts or those in unsealed envelopes will be considered unofficial.
- Your college's registrar or official transcript service may send your transcript electronically to the PAGE Foundation Scholarship Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Transcripts received from any other email address (including yours) are unofficial and will cause your application to be considered incomplete. Incomplete applications will not be scored.
- If needed: You may have your transcript sent directly to the PAGE Foundation Scholarship Coordinator at: Michelle Crawford, PAGE Foundation Scholarship Program, PO Box 942270, Atlanta GA 31141-2270.
Q: If my transcript is sent separately, when does it need to arrive?
A: All transcripts must meet the same deadlines as the rest of your application.
- Transcripts sent via postal service must be postmarked by April 30, 2012, and received in the PAGE Foundation Scholarship office no later than May 9, 2012.
- Transcripts sent via email must be sent by April 30, 2012.
If a transcript is late it will cause your application to be considered incomplete. Incomplete applications will not be scored. The PAGE Foundation can not be held responsible for lost mail, email delivery failure, or a delay in your college registrar or official transcript service processing your transcript request. We recommend you include your official transcript with the rest of your application. Please allow ample time for your transcript request to be processed and sent.
