Create and design your application
Kaleidoscope supports a variety of form types, including pick lists and question types that appear on-page based on an applicant’s previous response. As your trusted partner, we also help you develop questions and create a program that reaches the right applicants.
Collect recommendations from third-party contributors
When an applicant asks someone to provide a recommendation, the recommender receives an email, logs in to Kaleidoscope, and instantly sees and submits their recommendation — all on the same platform.
Design your custom scorecard and assign reviewers
Create a scoring rubric to support your selection process. Easily assign applications to review board members. Reviewers can simply log in and access their assignments directly on the platform.
Review applications and select recipients
Easily locate and assess applications ready for review. Kaleidoscope gives you the ability to redact identifiable information while keeping non-identifiable information available immediately upon submission. Once reviewers submit their scores you’re able to view results, export to a CSV, or automate for selection.
Notify recipients and disburse your funds
Communicate award status directly on the platform. Disburse the awarded funds to the recipients, while tracking and verifying the receipt and use of funds. We offer the ability to wire, ACH, check, Stripe, and send on a virtual Kaleidoscope Pre-Paid Debit Card.
Bring it together with data and analytics
Access data about your programs to inform reporting and future programs.
The scholarship and grant platform built for every user’s needs
Our platform is designed to accommodate everyone involved in the process.
No matter if your organization is getting its first scholarship or grant program off the ground, or if your award program has been around for decades, Kaleidoscope makes it easy to design applications, manage submissions, review applicants, and more — all on one platform.
Kaleidoscope gives applicants access to thousands of award programs. Applicants can browse and apply for awards they’re eligible for, track their applications’ progress, communicate with program sponsors, and reviewers, and more.
Applicants can easily request documents such as letters of recommendation and transcripts. These third-party contributors can then upload the documents straight to an applicant’s application on Kaleidoscope.
By offering customizable reviewing capabilities based on unique program criteria, Kaleidoscope makes the application reviewing process straightforward and efficient. Program administrators create a scorecard based on certain criteria, which reviewers then use to identify recipients for their awards.
