"We are absolutely thrilled with the application! We can see the power of technology and software instantly. In the old days of paper, we wouldn’t have a clue on the number until three days after the deadline when the FedEx envelopes would arrive. This is truly amazing and the Board of the Foundation was thrilled."

"I cannot say enough good things about SmarterSelect ! With a 47% increase in scholarships over the past two years, our organization had been discussing an on-line process – but was highly concerned about flexibility, security and the cost to develop such a program. SmarterSelect met all our criteria to manage the on-line scholarship application process: the flexibility to customize applications; secure access for all applicants, recommenders and selection committees; and with a more than reasonable fee structure. In addition there are automatic e-mail communiqués to applicants, invaluable spreadsheet data, paperless storage – and above all, excellent webinar training and support. SmarterSelect greatly increased our number of applicants and easily halved the time spent handling hardcopy applications. We now actually look forward to double-digit expansion in our scholarship program."

"Compared to the old paper-based system, the ScholarSelect online process makes it a breeze to assess, compare, and rank applications. It’s also easier for applicants to initiate the process. Using ScholarSelect has proved to be a very positive step for our organization."
- Chair, Scholarship Committee
Beta Phi Mu International Library & Information Studies Honor Society
"Carmel Education Foundation was looking for a way to streamline our scholarship program of 70+ different scholarships while using a single scholarship application form. SmarterSelect was the solution we needed, and provided such features as the ability to create lists of students eligible for each of the 70 scholarships. Both the public interface and the administrative functions were easy to use. I especially appreciated the ability to be able to e-mail deadline reminders to students who had yet to complete their on-line application. As a small foundation, we relied upon the expertise of the SmarterSelect staff to help us build the on-line scholarship application form, answer our questions about functionality, and provide world-class customer service. SmarterSelect listens to customers’ recommendations for improving the features and functions of its programs. We will be using SmarterSelect to build our first on-line grant application form for teacher grants."

"SmarterSelect has definitely made my job easier! As the administrator of our scholarship program, I was impressed initially with how simple it was to set-up the application. The staff that I've interacted with have always been accommodating and pleasant to speak with. Our applicants and evaluators have few critiques, and periodic updates made to the system are always helpful improvements. It is a consistent, reliable system that I plan to continue to use year after year."
