The alternate to Naviance scholarships - Scholars.Shop vs. Naviance Comparison


ScholarsShop is a scholarship platform used by districts, high schools, community-based organizations, parents, their students, and Independent Educational Consultants. For many schools and students, ScholarsShop can be used with or without Naviance to automate much of the scholarship process to make it easier for students and schools alike.


Scholars.Shop is able to help more students and families afford education by helping better connect students, schools and scholarship providers. We believe that by working together, we can make education accessible for all.


Why would schools use both ScholarsShop and Naviance?

ScholarsShop was initially designed to compliment and expand the scholarship tools on Naviance. Naviance has limited scholarships management and publicity features which creates a time-intensive process for school scholarship managers to update or list new active scholarships.


ScholarsShop automates much of the redundant scholarship management process by allowing outside organizations to list their own scholarships instead of this task falling on schools. This lets schools spend their time discovering and sharing opportunities with students instead of managing, updating or verifying each scholarship listing.



Let's look at what specifically makes Scholars.Shop different than Naviance:
