For many colleges and universities, stewardship of scholarship funds is a major challenge. Institutions often spend hundreds of hours collecting student thank you letters and manually generating reports on scholarship recipients and fund performance. This session will present survey results from hundreds of donor relations and scholarship professionals about the communications they share with scholarship donors. Join us as we review these results and examine best practice suggestions for improving systems and processes associated with scholarship reporting.
