Official Transcript and Recommendation

This section relates to documents submitted by high school counselors, professors/deans/academic advisors, and college registrars.

First-time Application for High School Students
High school students should plan to ask their guidance counselors to submit the official transcript and guidance counselor’s evaluation/recommendation. Your counselor can submit an existing recommendation (written for your college applications). Our Application contains a section for you to complete giving us your counselor’s name and email address. We will be in touch with your counselor about submitting the documents on-line. They will then become part of your Application. Your counselor will be able to submit material on-line but will not be able to view your application. Your transcript must include your grades from the Fall term.

First-time Application for College Students
Students already in college should ask their Registrars to send an official transcript to the Fund via regular U.S. mail: Edwards Scholarship Fund, 89 South St, Suite 603, Boston, MA 02111. Generally this document is mailed to the Fund, but your Registrar can send an e-copy to info@edwardsfund.org.
The recommendation should be submitted on-line by the college professor, class dean, or academic advisor. Our Application contains a section for you to complete to give us this person’s name and email address. Instructions to your recommender from the Fund will follow. She/he will be able to submit the recommendation on-line but will not be able to view your application.

Renewal Application
Renewal applicants should ask their college registrars to submit an official transcript to the Fund via regular U.S. mail: Edwards Scholarship Fund, 89 South St, Suite 603, Boston, MA 02111. Your registrar can send an e-copy to info@edwardsfund.org.
