School Officials

Recognize your students who do it all

You know the type. Students who always ace the quiz. Who shine on the field. Who are involved in every activity. And who set the example in your school and community. The Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship is your chance to recognize well-rounded senior men and women who learn, perform, and lead on a daily basis. And we’ve made it easier than ever before to refer your high achievers. Simply follow the steps below.

Refer a Student

Your school can have an unlimited number of applicants. Talk to all seniors who excel academically, athletically, and within your community, and encourage them to apply for the Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship. Direct students to this site for program details and the online application, or provide them with the program information which will be mailed to your school’s guidance office in August. Be sure to encourage your students to complete their applications early so that school officials will have plenty of time to carefully review the applications while allowing enough time to work with those students who need to correct and resubmit their applications.

Become a Reviewer

Each Wendy’s High School Heisman applicant must select one school official to review his/her application. The reviewer must be a teacher, counselor, or administrator at the student’s school and cannot be related to the student.

If a student selects you as a reviewer, make sure the student has your full name and correct email address—he or she will need to enter this information on the online application. After your student completes and submits the application, you will receive an email from wendys@scholarshipamerica.org within 24 hours. Please add wendys@scholarshipamerica.org to your address book or safe list so the email will not be blocked by a spam filter.

The email will contain instructions for logging into the online application. If more than one student chooses you as a reviewer, you will receive a separate email for each student you need to review.

Review The Application

To make it easy for students to complete their application, there are two phases to the application. Phase 1 of the application is required to be reviewed. Phase 2 of the application has a later deadline and is not required to be reviewed, and therefore will not be submitted to a reviewer.

To review a Phase 1 of a student’s application, log into the system via the instructions in your email. Carefully review Phase 1 of the application for completeness and accuracy by navigating through each section of the application using the next and previous buttons.

If you determine that a student needs to make changes, select the box indicating you do not certify its contents are accurate within the reviewer questions section of the application. Then complete the field where you can include a description of the issue you have identified. The information you include will be shared with the student so they can correct the error. After explaining what the student needs to correct, click on Submit. We will alert the student that Phase 1 of their application needs adjusted. Once the student adjusts their application you will need to re-review their application by going through the same process described above.

Give Your Approval

After you have navigated through Phase 1 of the student’s application and confirmed its accuracy, check the box that certifies its contents are accurate and complete and then click on Submit.

Don’t forget—you must approve all applications no later than October 4, 2017 at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET.
