Typically, scholarship management comes with a heavy administrative burden: Organizing internal grants, navigating the application process and building and maintaining relationships with donors, to scratch the surface. And with 65% of students looking for help to find winnable scholarships, a high-touch engagement strategy is all but necessary.
ScholarshipUniverse enables financial aid offices to increase scholarship fund utilization through adaptive student matching and a streamlined scholarship management process. The system, which was launched in 2018, is now used by colleges and universities across the country to simplify and streamline the scholarship management and awarding processes.
With some upfront work by administrators to set up preferences for their system, this solution takes the burden of vetting, verifying and matching students to scholarships off the backs of institution staff.
It also reduces time spent on reviewing applications with AI technology and donor management, thanks to a streamlined donor portal. ScholarshipUniverse provides the only database of hand-vetted external scholarships, inspected by a full-time team of scholarship researchers. These features combine to create a low-stress scholarship management system for administrators. For these reasons and more, ScholarshipUniverse is a Cool Tool Award Finalist for “Best Administrative Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards 2022 from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
