Presenter: John Fink, Research Associate, Community College Research Center

Drawing on National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) data tracking an entering community college cohort, this webinar will offer a national perspective on institutional and statewide effectiveness in helping students to transfer and earn bachelor's degrees. Results show large variation in institutional performance, even among similar types of institutions. The Transfer Playbook, published in May, 2016, documents the practices of pairs of two- and four-year institutions identified nationally (using NSC data) as very successful in helping students to transfer and earn bachelor's degrees. Based on visits to more than a dozen of these highly-effective institutions, findings from the Transfer Playbook will be unpacked.

Title: NSPA Promotional Webinar by WizeHive: Overcoming Software Overload: A Glimpse into the Future of Scholarship Granting

Date: Thursday, June 22, 2017, 12pm-1pm MT (Members Only)


Presenter: Natalie Hirsch, Director of Product Management at WizeHive

First came pen and paper. Then as we entered the digital age, we moved to PDF applications and spreadsheets. Finally came a level of efficiency previously unrivaled—a “management system” for every conceivable need. Somewhere along the way, scholarship providers began conforming to the limitations of these systems, making many compromises.


We envision a near future with far fewer compromises—one where modern software systems can communicate with each other, integrate in new and exciting ways, and provide customization capabilities that work for you, not against you. 


Participants will: 

  • Be briefed on the results of a survey revealing the most popular software solutions used across many scholarship providing organizations
  • Learn about present-day tools and strategies you can use to better integrate and customize that software to work for you 
  • Explore key insights on the future of scholarship management software

Thank you to the following organizations for their generous support!
