PHOENIX, Feb. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- CampusLogic, higher education's leading student financial success platform, today announced new features and updated functionality for ScholarshipUniverse, its fastest-growing product. A single source for both institutional and fully-vetted external scholarships, ScholarshipUniverse automatically matches students to relevant scholarship opportunities, reducing scholarship search fatigue, helping students close funding gaps in their higher education without taking on additional debt.
Updates to the ScholarshipUniverse product include a new donor portal, which allows scholarship donors to view information as presented to students, as well as statistics for the number of students who match, apply for, and are awarded scholarships. Additionally, donors have access to thank-you notes from recipients and the ability to see and update their profile information for students to view alongside scholarship details. The latest updates also feature a match explorer utility and, through CampusMetrics, CampusLogic's data analytics product, ScholarshipUniverse has twelve new reporting capabilities for schools, allowing for even more in-depth student insights.
"ScholarshipUniverse was born out of the problem that so many schools and students are facing: Scholarships are extremely valuable for ensuring student financial success, but finding and applying to legitimate awards is traditionally complicated. We continue to look for ways to make the process easier by using analytics and engaging other constituents, like donors," commented Chris Chumley, CampusLogic Chief Operating Officer.
Dozens of colleges and universities across the country are using ScholarshipUniverse to enhance the student experience and increase accessibility to higher education through sophisticated scholarship matching—often eliminating older, more cumbersome software that has historically been the standard throughout the industry. With more than 10,000 external scholarships in its database, ScholarshipUniverse is a continually growing force in the higher education sector. To date, 98,413,073 institutional and fully-vetted external scholarships have successfully been matched to recipients. In 2019 alone, 121,000 students were matched to external scholarships, and 44,000 students were matched to internal scholarships. Not only are schools with ScholarshipUniverse helping students close funding gaps, they are ensuring their scholarship dollars do not go underutilized.
Purpose-driven to help schools change lives, CampusLogic transforms the way higher education empowers student financial success. By continually updating its product platform and enhancing functionality to meet changing student and customer needs, CampusLogic is breaking down barriers and ensuring more students can fund and complete a higher education.
"Schools seeing ScholarshipUniverse for the first time are instantly awakened to a new and enhanced way of helping their students, staff, and donors. We are encouraged by the number of schools that have already implemented this product, and we are confident that ScholarshipUniverse will be the premier choice of institutions for scholarship management going forward," commented Ken Downs, CampusLogic Product Evangelist.
