Scholarship Provider Guidelines
To submit a scholarship for review, follow the steps below and send your submission via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to have your scholarship posted on Fastweb, please be sure that your organization and its website meet the following guidelines:
1. Application does not ask students for a social security number or credit card number.
2. Scholarship does not charge a fee to apply or reapply.
3. Corporate contact information, such as address, phone number, email, is easily accessible to students for further inquiries.
4. Scholarship does not display ads or other competitor scholarships.
5. Scholarship URL links directly to the specific scholarship page.
6. Scholarship page must clearly outline all eligibility criteria, required materials necessary for students to apply, and outline scholarship winner selection process and/or judging criteria.
7. If provider claims to be a not-for-profit organization, we have the right to verify their 501 ©(3) status. The sponsor must provide appropriate documentation confirming their status if we are unable to confirm through our own efforts.
1. Name of business/organization and/or site name, address, and contact information.
2. Language detailing whether or not you collect information from site visitors, what information is collected, and how this information is used once it is collected. Furthermore, student information can only be shared if students give their permission and for the purpose of awarding scholarships.
3. Students must not be automatically enrolled to receive extraneous emails and/or solicitations of any sort. You must provide an area where students can indicate whether or not they’d like to receive further communication. Finally, all further emails must include an option to remove their email address from any distribution lists.
Scholarship submissions that do not have privacy policies will be reviewed by the Fastweb Scholarship Department on a case by case basis, and will only be posted provided they meet all the requirements outlined above
Once you have determined that your organization meets these guidelines, please submit the following information via email to: email@example.com
