Efficiently deliver scholarships to thousands 

In-depth understanding of online application systems helped transform the speed and efficiency of scholarship delivery

THE CHALLENGE

Empower employees to support California students through a scholarship program.

__________

Pacific Gas & Electric supports California students with a variety of scholarships from their diverse Employee Resource Groups, or ERG’s. Through these resource groups, employees are able to support and encourage the next generation through ten scholarship programs.

Each ERG had a specific scholarship, therefore a different eligibility requirement. The review processes and application scoring also changed depending on the ERG.

The ten programs cover thousands of students, parents, educators, and volunteers. 

In 2012, they identified the need for a comprehensive, feature-rich system to manage this process. 

THE SOLUTION

Design an application system with purpose

__________

 

The Orchestrate Application Management System provided the ideal turnkey platform for PG&E.

eResources created a multi-step application, that allowed applicants the ability to apply for any of the scholarships through one reactive portal. This system allows for the robust and unique review process to be maintained within the same system.

Our team also took a proactive stance in coordinating, communicating, and training staff in the use of the application portal. 

With responsive support throughout the cycle, PG&E has provided thousands of scholarships and millions of dollars of awards to college-bound students.
