How It Works
Our platform brings sponsors, applicants, reviewers, recommenders, and more together in one place, empowering sponsors to build strong connections and support their recipients. See how the Kaleidoscope platform works.
Program administration made simple
Gain access to predictive analytics
Host your unique application process
Implement various types of form fields
Reach millions of students in one place
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, Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, 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.
