New scholarship management portal launched


An online self service portal for scholarship management

Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) on Saturday announced the launch of a state-of-the-art online scholarship Management System. Salem Al Sayari, Executive Director of Support Services Sector, ADEC says that the solution provides an end to end platform to manage the student scholarship management system.

Students will no longer be required to physically visit ADEC offices for submissions and follow up. Correspondence, document submission and final results will be automated.

“Response Time and Scholarship Management life cycle duration will be reduced by a minimum of 40%, which will help achieve and supersede current Strategic and Operational strategies set by ADEC. On the other hand 90% of paper work will be digitized, thereby supporting Abu Dhabi government green initiatives,” added Al Sayari.

These solutions also offer an online self service portal for follow ups and to communicate with current students from anywhere in the world solving time zone difference issues and assuring better and faster service.

Every student will have his own self service page which he/she can access from anywhere in the world. Self-Service is enriched with many features to allow students to submit, withdraw, manage and follow-up application requests, in addition to entering online work experience details, upload documents, enter competencies and score details.

Applications Maintenance, Evaluation, and approvals will be automated online with the maximum transparency.

Mona Majed Al Mansoori, ADEC’s Division Manager, Guidance and Scholarship, said that the door will be open for submitting Scholarship Program applications for the School Year 2012/2013 during the period 3-21 June 2012. Targeting high achieving Emirati students with G12 or equivalent graduation certificates, the program comes in line with ADEC efforts aiming at providing students with financial and moral support and allowing top performers to continue their higher education and contribute to the socio-economic development.

Abu Dhabi Education Council builds state-of-the-art Scholarship Management System in just nine months. This move is part of ADEC’s ongoing efforts to streamline and create more effective processes and procedures for Candidate Scholarship management. The project consists of three phases. With the roll-out of phase one, ADEC is looking forward to rolling out Phase II and III at a later stage.
