Say goodbye to manual, time-consuming, paper-based funding applications and constantly chasing evidence. Say hello to Blackbullion’s new online applications tool!

One year in the making the Funding Tool went live at selected partner universities, streamlining their hardship application processes and enabling more effective student support.

We’ve been aiding hardship processes since 2014, and with our new Funding Tool the entire student application journey is streamlined – from fund application launch through to the university decision outcome on the disbursement. The Funding Tool has built-in just-in-time learning to the application process, equipping students with new money-ready skills and underpinning financial solutions with education at all stages.

With The Funding Tool you will be able to:

  • Simplify the process: Streamline the application process for all types of funds, loans and scholarships.
  • Save time: Automate collection of evidence, follow up, and request for further information.
  • Be more proactive: Reduce the repetitive “low value” work through automation
  • Reduce student anxiety: Build-in reminders and email nudges help students to submit the application before the deadline
  • Improve turnaround time: Provide clear guidance and expectation from the start to help students complete their application
  • Measure impact and efficacy: Powerful and intuitive analytics dashboard to manage all applications, track student progress on evidence submission.
