    • Once you are logged in to the wiki, type the name of the scholarship or page that you want to create in the Search field on the homepage. Please check under all the possible names or spellings of your scholarship to be sure it does not currently exist in the database under a different title.
    • If the scholarship does not currently exist the wiki will ask you, in red text, if you want to Create the page ___ on this wiki!. Click on the red link and an editing Wikitext box will open.
    • Copy and paste the code in the box below under TEMPLATE FOR CREATING A NEW SCHOLARSHIP into the Wikitext/edit box of the scholarship Wikitext box of your new scholarship listing/page
    • Input your scholarship's information into the proper places in the template. Proper places are designated by text that says, "Enter...".
    • There are examples (e.g.) of the format and type of information that should be put into each part of the template, please follow that format.
    • Once your scholarship's information is entered, click the button at the bottom that says Show Preview or click on the main tab that says Preview (next to the Wikitext tab in your editing box)
    • If scholarship page looks like you want in the Preview, click Save Page.
    • If the Preview of your page does not look the way you want, simply make the required changes in the Wikitext editing box and Preview again. Repeat this process as needed. When your page looks satisfactory, click Save Page.
