Scholar Snapp and the College Board are partnering to create a better scholarship application experience, making it faster and easier for students to connect to scholarships that will help them pursue a college degree. As of October 1, Scholar Snapp functionality is available through the College Board Scholarship Search tool. With a College Board account, students are able to reuse their information with select scholarship providers from one application to another.
Whether applying through the College Board’s Scholarship Search tool, or directly through a participating scholarship provider’s website, students can save time on their applications by simply logging into their College Board account and using the Scholarship Search tool auto-fill functionality, powered by Scholar Snapp.
“For many students, college scholarships make higher education possible, opening up a lifetime of opportunity,” said Kevin Byrne, managing director for U.S. programs at the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, which oversees the Scholar Snapp data standard. “Through our partnership with the College Board, we can connect more students with more opportunities, saving them time, reducing the burden of data entry and increasing college access for deserving students.”
The College Board helps more than seven million students prepare for college each year through programs and services including the SAT and the Advanced Placement program. The new College Board Scholarship Search tool will complement existing features including BigFuture, a free college planning tool where students can find colleges, explore careers, and research options to pay for college.
“Through adoption of the Scholar Snapp data standard into our new Scholarship Search tool, scholarship providers are able to engage students at a critical stage in the college journey,” said Aaron Lemon-Strauss, vice president of College and Career Access at the College Board. “The functionality developed by Scholar Snapp helps to modernize the application process, making it less cumbersome for students to open the door to college opportunity.”
