We get asked a lot of questions, some of them more than others, so chances are we have an answer for you.
To check and see if your high school has partnered with VU, please send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll get back to you in no time.
About as easy as it gets. No, seriously. We’ve fully automated the end to end process so there is no administrative effort on the admin team or high school counselors. We set up a meeting. We unwrap it and within a short turnaround time we can begin to award their students.
Grab a coffee or whatever floats your boat and let’s meet over Zoom! Feel free to book a time here.
Nope! None. Zero. No silly strings either.
We take your child’s information seriously and collect information that is relevant to the college selection/admissions process no different than other services who aim to help your child. For a full disclosure on what we collect, please visit our privacy notice
Not to worry. We’ll help get you going. Click here and we’ll start working on it.
We’re always adding new post secondary partners. Throughout the year as we’re adding new partners, your child will automatically be notified if they receive an award from one of our new partners. We continue to do the hard work so they don’t have to. Is there a specific college or university? We’ll check and see if they’re a partner and if not, we’ll work to bring them on!
Let’s connect! Feel free to book a time with us here!
Of course. We want every student to know the vast amount of opportunities that exist for them. For some, it may not be a 2 or 4 college or university. For some, going to a technical school may be where their passion intersects with a talent! We’re all about that.
For school year 2022/2023, all high school juniors and seniors are eligible to participate. There is no minimum GPA and/or ACT score you need in order to be eligible.
Not every student is guaranteed a scholarship. Every college partner makes scholarship selections based on their own specific parameters.
Your student may receive multiple offers. They need to apply to the school(s) they wish to attend.
Each college will provide detailed instructions in the offer letter that students will need in order to take advantage of the scholarship. If your application for admission occurs after the deadline on your scholarship letter(s), the respective college(s) have the discretion to rescind or keep the scholarship offer active.
As long as you fulfill their requirements by their deadline, your student will be eligible to receive the scholarship. Your student must maintain their current academic standing upon which the scholarship was offered.
No, you are not committed to any institution offering you scholarships. You may decide to attend one of the schools offering you a scholarship by completing an admission application.
We anticipate colleges will increase scholarship offers when increases occur in ACT scores and/or the cumulative GPA of students during the school year.
Yes, you should participate! You may be eligible for scholarships from the institution you plan to attend. As well, you may receive competing offers from other institutions. This increases your options in deciding where you intend to enroll.
A student may receive as many scholarships as there are VU partners. For example, if there are 30 college partners, a student may earn up to 30 scholarships. We will continue to add college partners throughout the year.
No, you receive scholarships from colleges prior to applying. In fact, the vast majority of scholarships you receive will occur prior to you applying to any of the colleges. For example, you may receive eight scholarships from colleges without having yet applied to any of the schools.
Academic, demographic, and other variables that the student may provide while using the solution. For a full list, feel free to check out our privacy notice.
VU will use the provided data to create their account, and calculate the student’s awards.
VU does not provide this data to any third party marketing agencies. The data may be shared with our post secondary partners for the purpose of them sharing more about their particular institution with the student and what they have to offer or why they may be a good fit.
