How Concourse Helped Unlock Scholarships

The Last Minute Student Nightmare

In April 2018, a US university in Texas pulled the rug out from under the feet of 60 Nepali students, leaving them scrambling…

When a US university in Texas cancelled more than 60 full-ride scholarships for Nepali students in April 2018, it seemed all hope was lost. With only weeks until the May 1st deposit date of many US institutions, these students were sailing a captain-less ship into unknown waters. Few universities were still accepting applications, and most significant scholarships and student aid funds were already spoken for. Concourse enabled a team of dedicated counselors (later dubbed “The Justice League”) to quickly and efficiently showcase displaced students to universities still accepting applications. Concourse provided universities with complete and verified academic profiles, so admissions officers were able to present their administration with strong cases for extending scholarships to students who were strong matches for their institution. This system allowed virtually all students to be placed, with amazing opportunities at excellent universities that they otherwise would have never received!

How Concourse Created a New Opportunity

The Perfect Match That Almost Didn’t Happen

A student from Malaysia wasn’t even going to apply to the UK university program she wanted, because she thought she wasn’t qualified for admission…

But she was! The UCAS points system can seem pretty cut and dried, and in this case, unfortunately, placed her outside of the UCAS points requirement for her top choice university. Through Concourse, a representative from her top choice university discovered her,  reviewed her profile, including in-progress A level courses, and worked with her to navigate the details of admissibility (UCAS points, course selection, gap year considerations, IGCSE scores, IELTS results, etc.) The result was a successful application that could never have happened without Concourse! 

How Concourse Empowered a Student To Negotiate

A New Way to Think About Scholarships

An ambitious Bangladeshi student wanted to study in the US, but didn’t have enough funding for the program he wanted…

So when he was approached by a Boston-based university that discovered him on Concourse, he named his price, i.e. how much tuition he would be willing to pay! The student and university staff member went on to discuss financial aid packages, and the student discovered scholarship options that he didn’t know existed. The resulting discussion provided useful market intelligence for the university and was informative and empowering for the student.  This kind of negotiation could only happen on Concourse!

How Concourse works

Step 1

Invite your students to the platform

We’ve made it easy for you to add students to Concourse, individually or as a cohort. Concourse can even integrate with your school’s student information system which simplifies the process of completing profiles.

Step 2

Request recommendations

Students with completed profiles can utilize Concourse’s experienced research team who provide personalized, program-specific recommendations for your students. In addition, you and your student can add to this list at any time to keep their shortlist up to date.

Step 3

Showcase your students to universities

Once approved by you, student profiles become searchable to universities. But don’t worry- their personal and contact details remain private. Universities may wish to reach out to your students- but they can only do so on the Concourse platform- and you are invited to be a part of every conversation.
