Gold Bridge Partners is very excited to announce it has contracted with the State of Montana to conduct an analysis of their need for a Grant and Scholarship Management System. The Montana Guaranteed Student Loan Program (MGSLP), a department in the Montana Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education (OCHE), manages fourteen scholarship and grant programs that provide aid to qualifying Montana residents pursuing higher education. The administration of these programs is presently a relatively manual process. Over the next eight weeks, Gold Bridge will be working with Montana to design a customized solution that will meet their business needs and their budget.
The proposed software will award and track students and funds through the entire process from application, to initial award to graduation and repayment. It is expected that the system (once implemented) will increase the efficiency and accuracy of all records, provide ease of use for administrators, institutions and students, increase the ability to project award allocations, and provide means for obtaining and extracting more detailed information on trends and demographics.
