Scholarships apply credits, such as a fundraiser or donation, toward a registration. Scholarships can only be applied on the Admin side.

Check out this video on scholarships or follow the steps below to create scholarships and apply them.


If a person wants to give tax-deductible money to fund a scholarship, they cannot give it through Registrations. They can give in your regular giving, which will be input into your donation management system, like Giving. Once you receive the donation, add it as a scholarship and apply it where you see appropriate.

If someone wants to give directly to a person's registration, it won't be counted as tax-deductible. In this case, you can bypass the scholarship and apply the donation directly to the attendee's registration.

From the Scholarships tab on the event, select New Scholarship.

Enter the name of the scholarship as well as the amount allotted to the scholarship.

Select Save to add the scholarship then repeat the steps to add others.

Give Scholarship to Attendee

From the Registrations tab, search for the attendee to give the scholarship, and then select the attendee to view the registration.

From the attendee's registration, select Apply Payment to apply a scholarship to the balance.

Select the scholarship and amount to apply then Submit to give the scholarship to the attendee.

The amount will show the total balance due, so you can change it accordingly.
