About this Project:

Scholar Hunt is an innovative app designed to simplify the process of finding and as well as applying for scholarships based on their academic achievement background and interests. The idea of creating Scholar Hunt stemmed from the genuine desire to help the students facing financial crises, while taking interviews a lot of students mentioned that 50.4% of the students can not continue their study due to financial barrier that's why they need scholarships and they showed frustration due to their struggle of finding scholarships, the accurate information, lack of guidance and lack of resources. That is why I felt compelled to develop a solution that could make the process more easier and accessible for the students. That is why I came up with the idea of creating an app which is user friendly where students can discover personalized scholarship opportunities that supports their interest and qualifications. For this project I’m focusing on creating a centralized platform that will provide the students with comprehensive resources, personalized recommendation, clear guidance and important information. It is not just simplifying the process but preparing the students to achieve the scholarships in the future. If I can make this app happen it will be a great resource for the students reducing their stress and giving them a convenient & reliable way of starting their hunt for scholarships.

This is a fantastic project from start to finish. You clearly showed the problem, the urgency, and why your app is the solution. As an educator, I saw so many of my students encounter financial problems in college, which was heartbreaking, knowing all the work they put in to get to college. I hope this project becomes a reality because it could help many students.
