Our corporate giving platform is here to help you accomplish this. Here, you will learn the process you and your applicants will follow while using DX’s giving software.
Successful scholarship processes have many moving parts. What normally consists of handfuls of employees with a wide array of duties can become very overwhelming, very fast. There are many responsibilities that come along with applying for and awarding scholarships, such as planning, designing, program development,
Not to mention all of paperwork needing to be on hand (letters of recommendation, transcripts, and essays). It is far too easy to let one or more of those responsibilities to fall by the wayside, resulting in a poorly-run program. Want to prevent this?
The request form is also optimized for tablets and other personal small computers. This ensures a wider array of students can apply to your scholarships - no matter their platform or available technology.
