ATLANTA – Nuesoft Technologies Inc. today announced the spring 2008 winners of its 15-year Anniversary Scholarship program. Five schools each received an in-kind donation of up to $15,000 of Nuesoft Xpress™ health center management software.
The spring 2008 grant recipients are: Agnes Scott College, Barry University, Folsom Lake College, St. Norbert College and Winthrop University.
“We were extremely pleased with the number and quality of applications that we received this spring,” said Nuesoft Technologies President and CEO Massoud Alibakhsh. “The process was very competitive, but after careful deliberation, the review committee selected the schools that had the most demonstrable need for the grants. I think the choice accurately reflects Nuesoft’s commitment to improve resources for the college health community.”
“This is huge for our health center,” said Eileen Egan-Hineline, director of student health services at Barry University, and one of this spring’s scholarship recipients. “We have tremendous budget constraints and have not been able to stay current with technology. With a product like Nuesoft Xpress, we will be able to electronically schedule appointments and more easily analyze our school’s health care trends.”
“We couldn’t be happier,” said Barbara Bloomer, director of health services at St. Norbert College, which also received a grant award. “We’ve been tracking our student immunizations and other services manually, and it has been an extremely arduous and time-consuming process. Nuesoft Xpress will make us so much more efficient.”
The spring winners complete the first round of scholarships given out by Nuesoft. Because university budget calendars vary, Nuesoft is awarding grants in two rounds. The next five winners will be announced in the fall, with all applications reviewed by a selection committee comprised of college health professionals.
The deadline for the second round of applications is September 5, 2008. Fall winners will be announced on October 3.
