Step 1: Complete the General Application
First time users, click the ‘Sign Up’ to create an account with your Harper email. You must have a current application on file with Harper College and a program of study declared to apply for scholarships. Once you are in the system, submit a General Application. You will be automatically considered for all scholarships for which you meet the basic criteria.

Step 2: Check Opportunities for Additional Requirements
Check under ‘Opportunities’ and ’Ours" for other scholarships. Completing this step is critical as some scholarships have additional criteria and there are questions for you to answer before you can be considered for the scholarship.
