Comprehensive Scholarship Management
AcademicWorks provides technology that dramatically improves the process of matching students to the financial resources they need to make their educational dreams a reality. AcademicWorks uses information gathered via a configurable online application complemented, if applicable, by imported data from your student information systems to automatically match students to relevant scholarship opportunities. Using AcademicWorks, campuses and foundations can reduce staff time and cost while improving services to students, donors, and the greater community.
Create a Searchable Database of Scholarships
Enable both current and prospective students to search through all institutional, departmental, and foundation scholarship opportunities using flexible criteria that you define.
Match Students with Scholarship Criteria
Automatically match and apply students to appropriate scholarship opportunities using information gathered from an online scholarship application or data imported from their student record.
Effortlessly recommend scholarships to students based on their profile to help students find scholarships for which they are suited. Students can be prompted to provide additional information for specific scholarships such as essays or letters of recommendation.
Efficiently Screen Applicants for Scholarships
Automatically screen students against scholarship requirements using information from their student profiles. Applicants can also be asked to complete scholarship specific qualification questions to further identify whether they meet the minimum or preferred qualifications for a particular scholarship.
After initial screening, authorized scholarship administrators, donors, or committee members can review applicant materials, e.g., student profiles, essays, transcripts, references, and rate applicants against specific weighted criteria.
Create and Monitor Student Awards
Allow students to review and accept scholarship awards online. Students can review the requirements for each scholarship before accepting the award. Also, students have the ability to decline awards to help you reallocate the funds as appropriate.
Facilitate communication between your constituents regarding your scholarship selection and award process. Each AcademicWorks user will enjoy secure, role-based access to the information they need to better service students and increase donor affinity.
For recurring awards that are paid over multiple years or terms, AcademicWorks helps the foundation or campus by automatically tracking the student’s compliance with the original scholarship requirements.
