General FAQs

What do I use PeduL for?

PeduL is your one-stop shop for scholarships online. Students can apply to thousands of scholarships at one time through a universal application. Scholarship providers can easily build and manage their scholarships online.

What is a universal application for scholarships?

A universal application for scholarships is the most seamless way to manage the application process. This single application is used to help students apply to multiple scholarship opportunities at once.

Why do you spell PeduL like that?

Thanks for your asking! It's pronounced 'petal'. We spell it like that for a couple of reasons. We believe that education should be at the center of everything we do. We also believe that education bridges the gap between 'P' and 'L': purpose and life. It's our mission to bridge the gap of access to education for all.

Why is this important?

Over the years, college has transformed from a commodity to a necessary luxury. As the necessity of a college degree rises, so do the costs, barring more and more people from pursuing higher education. We created PeduL to break down that barrier.

Students FAQs

Who can use PeduL?

Everyone who has a desire to attend an educational institution, but just can't afford it, can use PeduL. We mean it. You can be young, old, purple, poor or middle-income. Feel free to use us if you only need $200 for a textbook, or you need $20,000 to pay off tuition. As long as you need us, we're here to support you.

Is it free to use PeduL?

For you, the student, yes! PeduL does not charge users to sign up or use our universal application for scholarships.

What if a scholarship provider has more questions than what I already filled out?

Some scholarship providers have supplemental questions that are relevant and specific to their award, which helps them compare candidate skills, interests, experience or other qualifications.

Where does my scholarship award go?

Some scholarship providers send funds to your school’s Financial Aid office while others send it directly to you. They will ask you to provide the appropriate information.

Scholarship Provider FAQs

Who can use PeduL?

We make it easy for anyone to make a scholarship. This includes individuals, organizations, non-profits, influencers, small businesses and corporations.

How much does my scholarship have to be?

Your scholarship can be as little as $100 and as much as $150,000 per recipient. We encourage all scholarship providers to give as much as they can. Micro-scholarships are just as important than scholarships that cover full tuition. Remember, books and food ain’t cheap!

Can I award things other than money?

We want the students on our platform to be exposed to opportunities of all kinds. All scholarship offerings must be monetary, but we allow our providers to couple that offering with other unique opportunities and gifts such as mentorships, internships, workforce development training, book credits, airline miles and more.

How long will it take for me to make a scholarship?

It only takes 10 - 20 minutes to create and build a scholarship with us. Then you’ll schedule a phone call with our experts and we’ll approve and upload your scholarship within 24 hours.

Do I have to have a certain networth to create a scholarship?

Nope, anybody and any organization can make a scholarship!

Is my scholarship tax-deductible?

Your scholarship is not tax-deductible by posting it on PeduL, but it can be if you partner with an existing 501(c)3 organization. We also have partnerships to make this possible. Reach out to us at YourFriends@PeduL.com

Who chooses the winner of my scholarship?

You can choose the winner of your scholarship or we can choose for you! We can also help you narrow down your options. Just remember, if you’re not a part of a 501(c)c organization and you’d like your scholarship to be tax-deductible, you cannot personally select the winner.

Where does the money go once the scholarship is awarded?

We can ensure that the funds are sent directly to the student’s Financial Aid office or you can send them a check.

How do I contact a PeduL student?

You can contact students who have applied to your scholarship through your dashboard.
