Committee Login Issues
A number of committee members have experienced issues logging in, so we decided that it deserves it's own page.
It is important to note that usernames and passwords are updated EVERY YEAR so even if you have accessed the site in the past, your username and password will and should be different each spring when the selection process starts over.
Designated Username / User Email Address:
If you are a selection committee Chair you would have received a specific Chair username from Sisters GRO. If you are a selection committee Judge, you should have received a designated Judge username from your selection committee Chair via email.
The username is case sensitive and will begin with something customized to your scholarship and will end similar to an email address with @Scholarship.ISTS. This username is what you enter into the email field on the ISTS login page. You will NOT use your personal email to login.
Do NOT register to create a new account and username. By doing so, you will be unable to access the applications tied to your scholarship. You must use the designated username.
The first time you log in to the system EVERY YEAR you will use the generic password that was either sent to you by Sisters GRO or by your selection committee Chair. The generic password is case-sensitive and needs to be entered in correctly.
Even if you have used ISTS in the past, usernames and passwords are reset at the start of each academic year meaning everyone needs to use the generic password the first time you log in each spring. After logging in for the first time, you will be able to change your password. You can choose to either keep the generic password or change it to anything you like as long as it has at least 8 characters, includes one upper and one lower case letter, a number, and a special character.
If you changed your password and can no longer remember it, click on 'I forgot my password'. Enter your designated username (see above) where it tells you to enter your email address. This will automatically reset your password to the generic password. Entering a personal email address here will not work as you are only registered in the system under your designated username.
If you are still experiencing issues logging in, contact ISTS at ContactUS@applyists.com.
