Educators with administrator or user level access can add a local scholarship to Xello for students to search and apply for. Keep local scholarships updated and current, and edit previously created scholarships.

You can choose whether to make the scholarship visible to your students right away or to turn off visibility until the scholarship is available for students to apply. If you remove visibility to a scholarship after a student has saved it, the scholarship will then be tagged as Unavailable for the student.

noteNote: Only those with administrator or user level access can create or make these changes. To learn more about educator access and permissions, read the article on Educator Permissions.

Add a Local Scholarship

If you know of a local scholarship, add it to Xello so your students can view the opportunity and apply.

noteNote: For those with user permission who create a scholarship, it will show only at the high school to which they're assigned. To create a scholarship that is visible to students across several high schools, someone with admin access can create the scholarship and select multiple high schools for the scholarship to show.

  1. From your Educator Account, under Features, click College Planning and select Local Scholarships.

  4. To make the scholarship show immediately for your students, switch the Visible to Students toggle to YES.
    • If the toggle is set to NO, the scholarship will not be visible or searchable to students.
  5. To save and complete, click Publish.
