Scholars United Feature Reviews

Tony Fox

Our Foundation has had a very positive experience with Community Force and Scholars United!

2018-05-10

We received many benefits from Community Force's scholar's united application. It's nice having a robust application portal that can handle many different scholarship funds - all with different application questions and criteria. I highly recommend the software to anyone with small or large scholarship programs.

Pros

I also like that students are allowed to upload supporting documents into the application.

Cons

It would be nice if CF and SU could add a CRM feature to their product so that we can continue tracking student payments while they are receiving funding from our program, and then after they've graduated, keep them in the system for alumni cultivation and communication purposes.

Takes the workload off your desk from receiving paper applications. Streamlined the process!

2018-05-10

Ease of awarding the scholarship and no more paper piles on my desk. The mailroom used to get tons of applications on the last day of the deadline and it was overwhelming having to make copies of every single essay and enough copies of each for our judges. It was very difficult the old way and this has streamlined our process immensely.

Pros

The spreadsheet to export was nice to have when a complete list of applicants was needed.

Cons

I feel that the training videos on the Help Center were made by the computer savvy employees of the company that are way more technical that the average person learning to use this software for the first time.

George Morris

Creating a hub for scholarship finding and applications

2018-05-10

We enhanced the faculty and student experience dramatically by providing easy to access and consolidated views to opportunities.

Pros

Integrates easily with student information systems and SSO.

Cons

The largest complaint, if that may be a complaint is the limited ability to customize the look and feel of the landing page for the portal. This is important as the default 'look' is quite different (primitive) from other services available online.
