Frequently Asked Questions

How do students get matched with scholarships?

We have built our engine in a way where it matches you to scholarship opportunities based on the information you provide. Factors such as gender, race, ethnicity, and citizenship status all affect the scholarships you are and are not eligible for. While we have tried our best to make sure that the scholarships you see are ones that you can apply to, scholarships can be very nitty-gritty in terms of what they require, so do be sure to read the eligibility requirements for each scholarship before applying! As time goes on, we are only enhancing our matching engine to provide you with a more sophisticated matching system.

Can international students/graduate students/trade school students apply?

Yes, we work with hundreds of scholarship providers to offer a variety of scholarships catering to a diverse range of students, from international students, to graduate level students, to trade school students. Please note, international students can only apply if they are legally studying at, attending, or enrolled in a U.S college or university.

How does CommonScholarshipApp protect my privacy?

Your data is protected with the highest level of security, and will only be used for the purposes of matching you with the best scholarships.

Is CommonScholarshipApp associated/partnered with any student loan providers?

CommonScholarshipApp was created to offer students an alternative solution to taking out student loans. We will never partner or associate with student loan companies.
