DiscoverScholars Update

It’s been quite a while since we last blogged about what we’ve been up to,  so we wanted to give you a brief update.

In the last few months, we’ve seen an influx of student applications, as demand for scholarship funding from students is probably as great as it’s ever been. Much of our recent work has been concentrated on improving our behind-the-scenes infrastructure to handle this increasing demand.

But perhaps our biggest development during the last month has been [finally!] receiving word from the IRS that we are officially a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We’ve written on here in the past about the difficulty of this process, but the wait was worth it: you can view our official exemption letter here. With this obstacle now out of our way, all of contributions in support to students via DiscoverScholars.org are fully tax-deductible!

We’ve also expanded our board of directors, and in the next week, I’ll be introducing them to our readers. Look for them to start blogging, and expect regular updates from here on out.

We’ll be sharing updates of our progress, offering ways that you can help us, discussing our take on higher education, and talking about whatever happens to be on our minds.

In the meantime, you can follow us in a number of ways: on Facebook, Twitter, via e-mail, or by adding the DS blog to your favorite reader.

Thanks so much for your support of DiscoverScholars!
