About using your Stars Account

All applicants are required to have a Stars account. Stars will communicate with applicants via the Stars account with notices being sent via email.

  • We recommend applicants apply online, as this will afford you more options in submitting documents and following the application process.
  • If you are applying online for the first time, you will set up your account at the start of the application process.
  • If you have applied for Stars before, you can use existing credentials from last year. If you don't remember your credentials select the "forgot password" option.
  • Hard copy applicants must wait for Stars to enter your application in to our system before your Stars account is enabled.
  • Applicants will receive notifications via email prompting them to check their Stars account anytime Stars has made an update to their account.
  • Emails will be sent from "noreply@starsscholarship.org". Please make sure you check your junk/bulk mail boxes for emails from us.

From the Stars account...

  • Applicants can review their application and check the status of documents (pending, missing, approved, etc).
  • Applicants can upload documents during the application period.
  • Applicants selected as recipients will be provided an awarded letter via their Stars account and will see their status regarding their award offer.

Please make sure you review our application process before contacting us regarding your application status. Due to the volume of applicants, we will NOT review or update accounts immediately upon receiving your documents.

Once you log in, you can go to "Application Status" and view documents:

  • "Received - Pending Review" status means that we have received the document, however Stars has not reviewed it yet.
  • "Accepted" status means that Stars has received your document and it has been approved and no further action is needed.
  • "Rejected" status means that Stars has received your document however it does not meet the document requirements. A reason will also be provided.
  • "Not Received" status means that Stars did not receive the document at all and you must send it. If you did sent it, it is possible it was lost in the mail or the fax/email did not come through and you will need to resend it. Make sure you keep a copy of all your documents and track how/when you sent them to us.

Instructions on Uploading Documents

We encourage all applicants to "like" our Facebook page. We post updates during the processing and review periods. In case you don't receive your emails, you will at least be able to see where in the process we are. In addition we will post updates on our website.
