Scholarships

Created on:
Updated on:

Scholarships apply credits, such as money raised during a fundraiser or donation, toward a registration. Scholarships can only be applied by an Administrator or Manager.

Notice

If a person wants to give tax-deductible money to fund a scholarship, they cannot give it through Registrations. They can give through your donation management system, like Giving. Once you receive the donation, add the amount as a scholarship and apply it to the appropriate attendees.

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, click New Scholarship.

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

Click Save to add the scholarship then repeat the steps to add others. If additional money is collected for the scholarship, update the scholarship amount to reflect the new total.

Apply Scholarship Funds to a Registration

When a person registers for the signup, they will have to pay at least the minimum deposit, so you may need to set that to $0 if you don't want them to pay anything.

After they're registered, click Apply Payment to apply a scholarship to the balance.

Notice

You may need to refund the attendee if they paid over the amount.

As you use scholarships, view the amount used and remaining in the scholarship.
