                                                Common Scholarship Application
We use an electronic Common Scholarship Application (CSA)  for multiple scholarships. Students can complete the application  ONCE and then submit the form multiple times for various scholarships.

Please read these instructions before beginning your online CSA:

1)  Students are required to use their district/school email address (mhslead.org, gunnisonschools.net) to set up a Chalk Forms account. This allows students to copy fields into a new form each time they apply for scholarships. If you do not have a district/school email address contact support@chalkschools.com to have your Chalk account approved.

2) When creating a Chalk account you will be asked your Department and Role. Students should choose OTHER for both.

3) Begin by creating a Chalk Account here.

4) You will receive an email from Chalk Forms once your account is activated.  After account activation click here to start a new application. After you begin, you can access this scholarship application through a link sent to your email address.

5) Pay close attention to supplements/uploads required by each scholarship agency. Allow yourself plenty of time to complete the CSA and upload necessary documents by each deadline.

For support or questions regarding your Chalk account please email jennifer@chalkschools.com

We prefer if you complete your CSA online, but if you can't click HERE for a PDF version you can print, complete, and submit.  Don't forget your supplements!
