Eighteen months ago, CommunityForce and The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation formed a collaboration to integrate, promote and propel the launching of the foundation’s latest technological innovation: Scholar Snapp® into our scholarship management platform.
Using CommunityForce's ScholarSwag scholarship search platform as the bridge, CommunityForce was able to seamlessly integrate Scholar Snapp throughout it's scholarship provider's management platforms, bringing an easy and efficient way for students to apply to multiple scholarships using application data created once, saving the student hours.
"ScholarSwag is a platform that connects the dreams and aspirations of students with the financial means to attend college. When the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation approached us about possibly integrating Scholar Snapp into our platforms, we were excited about the possibilities - and the potential value - this would create for our clients and their students." ~ Khaja Syed, CEO, CommunityForce, Inc.
"Our goal for Scholar Snapp is to make applying for scholarships faster and easier for low-income students." ~ Kevin Byrne. Managing Director, US Programs, Michael & Susan Dell Foundation
Scholar Snapp helps applicants identify scholarship providers that accept Scholar Snapp data and practice building a quality scholarship application.
It also allows scholarship providers to synchronize their application with the Scholar Snapp data standard dynamically.
“Worrying about how to pay for college is hard enough without spending extraordinary amounts of time having to fill in the same redundant information on each application.” said Kevin Byrne, Managing Director, US Programs at the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. “Scholar Snapp enables students with better access to scholarship money by streamlining the application process.”
This state-of-the art technology has been seamlessly integrated within CommunityForce's scholarship management platform, and brings several advanced capabilities – functions that allow students to automatically reuse their application information — including contact information, essays, transcripts, etc. — from one scholarship application to another, streamlining the college scholarship application process.
