Foundant has been closely tracking the global private philanthropic response to COVID-19 through news stories, public resources, and conversations with our clients. Although the response to COVID-19 has taken on familiar patterns for funders and recipients, the response affects clients in different ways than we have seen in the past.

In this first session of our Scholarship Management COVID Coffee Talk series, we discuss the following:

  • Adjusting deadlines and requirements
  • Online evaluation
  • Committee meetings and selection

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear how your peers are tackling issues around COVID-19 in their scholarship management.
