How Edison High School Used Parchment to Fund Student Scholarships

Edison High School

”This year alone, we gave out $10,000 in scholarships to students through the money we’ve collected through Parchment. To be able to put those dollars back into the hands of students is incredible.”

– Dr. Diane Braungard-Galayda, Supervisor of Guidance, Edison High School

Three Ways to Generate Revenue

Parchment Surcharging offers a powerful solution to generate revenue for your institution through three key avenues: students, alumni, and graduation verifications.

Graduation Verifications

Streamline the process of graduation verifications. By charging a fee for each verification request received from employers, background check agencies, or other institutions, you can turn this administrative task into a revenue opportunity. With Parchment’s automated verification system, you can provide faster and more accurate verifications while generating funds that can be used to enhance your educational offerings.

Dual Enrollment - Seamless Student Experience


Extend the revenue-generating capabilities to your alumni community. As alumni request official transcripts for employment, further education, or personal purposes, you can charge a fee for each document processed. This not only helps cover the costs associated with managing and fulfilling these requests but also creates a sustainable revenue stream that can support your institution’s ongoing initiatives.


You can charge a nominal fee for each document requested by your students. Whether it’s official transcripts, diplomas, or other academic records, you can turn the process of fulfilling these requests into a revenue-generating opportunity. By providing a seamless and efficient document delivery service, you not only meet the needs of your students but also generate funds that can be reinvested in your educational programs.
