The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation is a private, independent foundation dedicated to advancing the education of exceptionally promising students who have financial need. The Foundation supports exceptional students from elementary school to graduate school through scholarships, grants, direct service, and knowledge creation and dissemination.
For the Foundation, Venturetec designed and engineered an easy to use online student application system to handle over 100,000 student applications per year. On the backend, we engineered a search-correlation engine and system for administrator’s that assists in parsing applicants through a series of queries. For students interacting via social media, we built a Facebook bot to handle some of their questions, including a correlation engine that efficiently match schools with student accomplishments.
