ETS's Scholarship & Recognition Programs (SRP) staff will help you design and administer a scholarship competition that brings your initial concept to life. We offer custom program design and tailored selection formulas, application design consultation, review committee services, plus effective, reliable application and data processing.
Custom, Flexible Design
SRP approaches every scholarship program design as a unique assignment. Every program we create reflects years of experience with hundreds of programs and solid knowledge of industry best practices. Importantly, each SRP program design projects your corporate personality and brand image.
We provide you with a customized scholarship program that is truly your own — not an off-the-shelf product indistinguishable from those of competitors or other companies. We make sure your program stays distinct and true to its objectives by conducting systematic reviews of new and existing programs.
Selection Criteria and Application Design
How do you ensure that the deserving students you envision as the recipients of your scholarships actually receive them? This takes expert development of selection criteria and formulas, plus an effective application process.
SRP provides clients with:
- the psychometric services of ETS
- tailored selection formulas aligned with your program goals
- application design, editing and production services
There are often fine distinctions between finalists in a scholarship competition. What separates the eventual winner from other finalists may not be readily apparent to the untrained observer or reviewer. Making the right decision requires an objective, credible decision-making process.
That's why SRP recommends an external review committee with trained professionals who know how to evaluate applications. Our outside experts know what to look for in candidates' academic records. They know how to evaluate extracurricular and community activities. They can make those fine distinctions between otherwise similar candidates.
We draw from a panel of 250 scholars and experienced reviewers to select the right members for your committee. We can take advantage of ETS's relationships with universities worldwide to customize a panel for a particular scholarship program that concentrates on a particular course of study or professional discipline.
As a world leader in educational measurement, ETS administers more than 50 million tests per year. To do that, we employ a state-of-the-art data processing system. As an SRP client, you can enjoy the benefits of that technology and the statistical reliability that ETS builds into every product and service it produces or provides.
