Features: This site uses CSS-based navigation schema to provide visual context while making updates less labor intensive. Portal entry points for different user-types (students, both domestic and international, and counselors) to better direct particular users to important information. There is also a free scholarship search function wherein users input criteria which become filters to assist in searching a huge database of state, federal and individual scholarships and aid programs. This is currently as Access database on an NT/IIS web server with ASP pages providing access to the database.
