AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- AcademicWorks announced today that it has joined the Ellucian Partner Program. AcademicWorks offers a comprehensive and complementary scholarship management solution for institutions using Banner® by Ellucian, Colleague® by Ellucian, and PowerCampus(TM) by Ellucian.
"Scholarship administration represents a significant administrative burden and compliance risk for most institutions. The wide array of scholarship fund criteria, application requirements, and review committees results in a process that is extremely difficult for campuses to administer and audit. Joining the Ellucian Partner Program allows AcademicWorks to gain valuable expertise to further improve our market-leading scholarship management solution for Ellucian clients," says Brandon Phipps, CEO of AcademicWorks.
AcademicWorks allows campuses to automatically match students with relevant scholarship opportunities, facilitate the committee review process, make and monitor awards, and recognize scholarship donors. AcademicWorks also provides convenient data integration with a client's student information system and user authentication platform. Other highlights of the system include a cost effective "SaaS" (Software as a Service) deployment, turnkey implementation, and outstanding service and support.
