Note for Scholarship Data Reporting: Neither the “Scholarship Student Selector” nor the “FA Funds Summary” report in Reporting Center include all relevant data for official financial aid or scholarship reporting purposes. For any information you need for financial aid or scholarship statistical data please contact the University’s Office of Institutional Research at 612-624-4851.
Scholarship automation training
The scholarship automation process is used to pay institutional scholarship, grant, or fellowship amounts that help students defray the cost of attendance (COA).
To use the scholarship automation process, you must make a request for PeopleSoft access. Your Key Contact, RRC, or UMD area class manager should read the data access instructions. To request access, staff will need to complete the Scholarship Entry Access Request Form.
Online scholarship application administrator training
In order to use the online scholarship application tool, the Office of Student Finance must first set up administrator access for at least one staff member in your college. Please email OSF Scholarship Unit at email@example.com to request administrator access. Administrators then have the ability to add access for other staff members in their college.

Scholarship Tracking and Reporting (STAR) training
This session provides training for the STAR tool (Scholarship Tracking and Reporting) housed within the University of Minnesota Foundation's Donor Management System (DMS). The class is geared toward accounting staff who manage scholarship funds at the University and scholarship administrators who award scholarships to students.
