Coffee Talk: COVID-19 Concerns in Scholarship Management (Session 2)

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 second session of our Scholarship Management COVID Coffee Talk series, we discuss the following:

  • How will you handle interviews needed for student selection?
  • How will you bring your committee together for selection meetings?
    • Interested in one committee for one scholarship.
    • Interested in one committee for multiple scholarships.
  • Has anyone transitioned from discussion to scoring for student selection (during this crisis or before)?

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