How many scholarship and awards are given out?

Each participating career college determines the number of $1,000 scholarship or awards to qualified student applicants.

Can I transfer my scholarship?

Imagine America scholarships and awards are not transferrable because not all schools participate in our programs.  Participating career colleges are fully accredited, Title IV, for-profit colleges which offer specialized career training programs that have elected to be a part of our program.  If the school that you plan to attend is a public college/university or one that is eligible for public-funding, such as a state, nonprofit or community college, the award is not applicable there.  

If the school that you are transferring to is a participating career college, you will have to resubmit your application.  Please contact us at scholarships@imagine-america.org if this is your intention as we will have to disable your current application so that you may re-apply.

To determine if your school participates, please click on the link below that pertains to your scholarship.

What if the college is not listed or hyperlinked?

The school you are interested in attending is not listed because it either does not meet the eligibility criteria of being a fully accredited, private, for-profit career school or has not enrolled for participation in one or more of our award programs.
