Submitting Application Materials for Students

TFEC Scholarship applications require you to submit a Transcript and School Counselor Form on behalf of the student.

Email all files to scholarshipapplications@tfec.org :

  • Include the name of the student and the name of the scholarship(s) your student is applying for, if known. 
  • You can submit Transcript/ School Counselor Form/ Reference letters via email once. We can pair the same files to multiple student applications.
  • Scans of signed documents as well as electronic signatures will be accepted.
  • Emailed items will not appear as attachments to the student’s online application or prevent them from submitting by the deadline.
  • After the application deadline passes, we will communicate directly with the student that their entire application is complete including materials emailed separately. Confirmation will not be sent before the deadline.

When required, reference letters can be emailed to scholarshipapplications@tfec.org by the teacher/mentor writing the letter OR by you. (Feel free to continue to use the system you already have in place at your school for students requesting reference letters be sent on their behalf) Letters should be printed or saved on letterhead whenever possible.

See our blog post with advice for students on how to request someone write them a reference letter including an example email template.
