Enhance stewardship of your scholarship donors by implementing effective communication channels across your campus.

Learn how to more meaningfully engage your scholarship recipients and obtain pertinent information from all stakeholders to have a more impactful stewardship process. Be strategic and practical in your approach, but more importantly, be effective. Stewarding scholarship donors is a team effort. By implementing clear lines of communications early on, you can simplify the process and get what you need to create a cohesive donor experience. Join us to learn how to improve the way you receive and organize information from scholarship recipients, your financial aid team, and other partners on campus.

You’ll leave this webcast with unique policies, procedures, and timelines that your shop can implement immediately. Ultimately, you will be able to improve stewardship for your scholarship donors by:

  • Ensuring timely and effective communication channels from the financial aid office to scholarship recipients
  • Informing everyone involved in the process of their set timelines and expectations
  • Building a cohesive and consistent scholarship donor experience in which they receive meaningful reporting

Who Should Attend

Stewardship and donor relations professionals who want to learn best practices in scholarship stewardship and reporting will leave this webcast with resources, tools, and ideas to improve how you educate partners on campus, obtain and organize scholarship information, and engage students in stewardship.


Our faculty will teach you how to:

  • Establish effective policies
  • Implement procedures and timelines
  • Train your partners on campus

Together, these tactics will help you orchestrate a more cohesive and meaningful donor experience.
