The Rotary Futures College Resource Center, in conjunction with Kantel Data Systems*, developed and implemented the first local scholarship database. The Student Scholarship Management System (SSMS) now houses over 900 scholarships valued at over $70 million. The SSMS includes local and national scholarships as well as institutional scholarship information. Students (of all ages) may set up accounts in the SSMS. Based on the personal information entered, the SSMS will identify potential scholarships for the student. The SSMS has been an invaluable resource to the students utilizing our program.

NOTE: The SSMS is not internet accessible. Students must access the database at the Rotary Futures College Resource Center.
