Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 18, 2016
Monday, April 18, marks the beginning of the 11th annual National School Foundation Association (NSFA) conference, where representatives from over 30 states will gather in St. Louis for three days of building relationships, sharing ideas and attending speaker sessions. Adding to a rank of thought leaders, Robert Davis, founder and president of SmarterSelect, will be speaking on best practices for online scholarship and grant applications.
Davis joins other influential speakers such as education commissioners and representatives from public advocacy firms. Speaker sessions vary in education-related topics, ranging from fundraising and engaging parents, to online scholarship and grant applications.
“I’m honored to be included in such an impressive roster of speakers, all aiming to provide support, training and resources to K-12 education foundations and their leaders,” said Davis. “Online applications for scholarships, grants and awards can greatly improve the process and experience for both administrators and applicants alike, and it is our goal at SmarterSelect to make that process as simple as possible.”
Davis has over 25 years of technology experience with application form design, cloud-based technology services and operations process improvement.
A Dallas-based SaaS company, SmarterSelect was founded when Davis’s daughter was applying for scholarships. He noticed that most organizations were using either mountains of paper, or relying on homegrown, minimal web forms that were expensive to create and maintain. With the introduction of cloud computing, the idea of a cost-effective, feature-rich, hosted application management solution was born.
Davis’ workshop session, “Best Practices for Online Scholarships and Grant Applications,” takes place on Tuesday, April 19, at 3:45 p.m.
