Scholarships are something that many governments choose to offer students throughout the year, which means they will receive a high volume of applications. These can be challenging to sort and review completely manually, as there is a high risk of disorganization and manual errors. Applications can be missed or put into the wrong sections, and things can easily become overwhelming for case managers. So how exactly can this process be improved to ensure every application is given a chance, without adding any additional manual work?
SimplyCast presents the Digital Scholarship Application Management Solution. This collection of automated tools allows case managers to collect and review applications all in a centralized database. Applicants can easily be kept updated on important information without needing to manually reach out to each one.
There are many benefits to choosing the automated system, but we have identified our top 3 to share in this blog.
Benefits of the Digital Solution
SimplyCast foresaw the need for a better system that ensures all applications are considered. Students often work hard on their applications, so it is important that each one is given its fair share of attention and is reviewed by a case manager. However, with such a high volume of applications being collected, it can be overwhelming and difficult to handle each one. By making use of automated tools, these organizations can ensure their scholarship management process runs smoothly, and the need for manual work is reduced. Here are some examples of how this process can be greatly improved using automation.
Easily Collect Applications
Applications can easily be filled out using dynamic online forms. Scholarship related information and requirements can be inputted into this form and stored in a centralized database once submitted.
Based on the information obtained on the application, the system can sort and eliminate any candidates that didn’t meet the requirements. For example, if two years of job experience was a requirement, the solution can detect which applicants don’t have this and not put them through the process.
Share Final Results
Once a decision has been made by the case manager, the solution will send an update to all applicants, sharing the results and other important information. This ensures everyone is kept informed without having to manually reach out to each applicant.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution for organizing scholarship applications, and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to help this administrative process run smoother.
