External Scholarship Committees
We are in the process of switching from FIMS to SLM (yeah!!). Our current scholarship system entails a separate committee for each scholarship managed internally. We will be streamlining these to a general committee and some focused on specific fields of interest (i.e. all medical related scholarships will share a committee). My issue comes in that some of our scholarships utilize external committees held at the local high school in which that particular scholarship is for (and we have 12 high schools!).
My questions is as we go thru this conversion process -- does anyone still allow external committees to exist or did you pull them all internally when converting to SLM? If remaining external, are they notifying you of recipients via SLM or another method (i.e. paper/email)?
Thanks so much for any insights you can provide.
