Has any of you who heard back applied to Scholars for Justice?
They do rolling review - taking them in the order they go complete - and the most recent decisions reported (today) went complete in late December. So right now looking at 6 weeks (hopefully less) for decisions.
Thank you!
I am going insane. I have been under review since January second. Anyone else's decision taking a long time?
They seem to send decisions Thurs/Fri every week. Anyone hear back?
They just put me under review today after asking for an addendum. Maybe tomorrow they will send out more decisions.

Anyone tried negotiating scholarships? Any tips?
My scholarship was written very bluntly that there is no room for negotiation
Waitlisted 🤣
