What We Do

We create and manage scholarship programs for organizations around the country, and work with hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide to connect deserving students to these scholarship opportunities.

Managment

Managing a scholarship program is complex and time-consuming. To do it well, it requires creating and maintaining a nationwide network of college campus contacts, robust online application technology and applicant tracking system, unbiased selection committees, audit proof distribution of funds, academic performance monitoring on an ongoing basis, detailed reporting, and knowledgeable customer service.

Growth

We talk with donors all around the country and hear these same pain points. We work with businesses large and small, trust officers, foundations, service organizations, associations, and individuals. Whether you already operate a scholarship program and want to outsource its management to focus on your core business, or if you want to build a new program from scratch, we can help!
