Snapp Your App

The Scholar Snapp® solution is a free, simple to use data standard that allows students to reuse their application information -- including contact information, essays, transcripts, etc.--from one scholarship application to another thereby streamlining the college scholarship application process.

The Scholar Snapp solution simplifies the scholarship application process by allowing students to automatically reuse their basic information for scholarship applications by syncing data from the centralized Scholar Snapp website. The Scholar Snapp website helps applicants identify locations that accept Scholar Snapp data, practice building a quality scholarship application, and also allows scholarship providers to synchronize their application with the Scholar Snapp data standard dynamically.

The Scholar Snapp initiative has partnered with The Common Application, National Scholarship Providers Association (NSPA) and scholarship providers across the nation.
