Staff: Adding Local Scholarships

If you have Local Scholarships available in your district, you can use MajorClarity to help manage and promote these opportunities to your students. When a student is researching scholarships in the Financial Resources tab, they have the ability to filter by your available Local Scholarships as well. This article will walk you through the steps of creating and managing your Local Scholarships.

Only District and School Admins have the ability to create and manage Local Scholarships.
Local Scholarships will be visible district-wide. If an opportunity is school-specific, we'd recommend adding the school name or another type of identifier to the title of your Scholarship.
