Scholarship Search Feature Live in Literati School

Scholarship Search Feature Live in Literati School 

June 25 2013, Boston, Oxford – Credo, the industry leader for information skills solutions, today announced that it has added Reference Service Press’ scholarship search feature, “FundingFinder Express,” to Literati School,the company’s recently-launched solution that helps K-12 educators teach foundational information skills. Now, Literati School will not only meet the information needs of pre-college students, but it will also help them find ways to pay for college at a time when costs have reached an all-time high. Bundled at no additional cost to Literati School subscribers, FundingFinder Express will greatly increase the value of Literati School for its users.

Drawing on Reference Service Press’s award-winning database, FundingFinder Express offers students the opportunity to customize their search for college aid, receive email alerts when new scholarships that match their profile become available and get deadline date reminders, so they don’t miss out on scholarships that are closing soon.

Dr. Gail Schlachter, founder of Reference Service Press and publisher ofFundingFinder Express, called the inclusion of the data inside Literati School “a perfect addition.” As she explains, “just as Literati provides context for student research and information literacy, FundingFinder Express will provide the necessary context for the search for financial aid.”

“We were excited to establish our partnership with Reference Service Press earlier this year and are thrilled to have implemented this new service,” said Carol Helton, Executive Vice President of Customer Solutions and Marketing. “Reference Service Press’ reputation for providing the highest quality financial aid directories, ebooks and searchable databases preceded them and we are seeing great results from this first implementation of the financial aid tool in Literati School.”
