Kuok Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to alleviate poverty and suffering, the fostering of self-reliance and empowerment of the disadvantaged through education and training. It does so by offering education grants and loans to students based on need and academic merits.
Different grants and loans are offered every year based on need and merit. The custom-developed system is a web-based application covering the full end-to-end scholarship application process. It has three systems consisting of:
- Online Award Application
- Awardee Selection
- Grant/Loan Disbursement Management
These applications reside in a Virtual Private Server.
Final Note: A web-based system was particularly useful during the COVID-19 Movement Control Order lockdown periods. It enabled the online application process to continue as the staff worked from home.
