Previous Scholars

The application for Previous Scholar Recognition is electronic. This means we will heavily rely on email addresses. To make sure we have your updated email address, please email Katie. If you have multiple email addresses, we are happy to add all of them to our database - just let us know!

Scholarship Payouts

Payout forms for the fall 2014 semester will be mailed to all eligible Carson Scholars in May. Again, this semester we will offer an online payout request form. Scholars will receive an email with instructions for completing their payout request online in May.

Payout forms will be due back to the CSF office by July 9, 2014. Checks will be mailed to colleges on July 18, 2014, in time for the fall semester. Any Payout Request Forms received between now and then will be held until July. Any Payout Request Forms received after July 9, 2014 will be held for payout in the spring 2015 semester.

Please note that payouts can only be made after verifying that the scholar is a full-time accepted and enrolled student at an accredited institution within the United States for the upcoming semester. Students must be enrolled in a bachelor's-degree-track (four-year) program.

If any of your contact information (mailing address, email address, or phone number) has changed since we last heard from you, please get in touch! We can only mail Payout Request Forms to addresses we have. To update your information, call 410.828.1005 or send an email to
