I have a VF page that inserts two records in a single page:

  1. Insert recipient__c object with required fields: school__c
  2. Insert scholarship_award__c object with required fields recipient__c, year__c, award__c, and school__c

Issue here is that when I set recipient__c to the Id of the previously inserted recipient__c record, it doesn't seem to work in referencing the newly inserted record.

I've tried switching around the insert statement so that I defined the variable first, however to no avail. It simply asks for required other fields which are inputted by the user.

public class c2{
    public scholarship_award__c sch {get;set;}
    public recipient__c rec {get;set;}
    public c2(){
        sch = new scholarship_award__c();
        rec = new recipient__c();
    public void saveScholarship(){
        insert rec;
        rec = new recipient__c();
        insert sch;
        sch = new scholarship_award__c(Recipient__c=rec.Id);

VF page

<apex:page showHeader="False" applyHtmlTag="true" applyBodyTag="false" controller="c2" lightningStyleSheets="True">

    <body class="slds-scope">
