Abstract
This project seeks to improve an existing web based system used by a Non-Governmental Organisation in Ghana to manage their scholarship application process. The NGO, which sponsors High School students in Ghana, currently has a web based application that helps them process their scholarship application and awarding process. The existing application keeps record on applicants, generate points for applicants which are used as the basis for awarding the scholarships, and generate scholarship offer letters for these awardees. Given the current focus of the existing system, this project seeks to widen the scope of the system by adding functionalities to track payments. Therefore, instead of just being a Scholarship Application System, the system will be a Scholarship Management System (or a Scholarship Fund Management System). At the end of this project, the NGO should be able to use less time in processing payments, get a more transparent payment system, generate reports from the system and reduce costs of operation.
