Intelligent Automation

Sidekick leverages intelligent automation to create a personalized experience for participants, ensuring quality data collection, opportunity visibility, and consolidated workflows.

Intelligent Program Matching in Sidekick utilizes a sophisticated algorithm to create a detailed applicant persona based on responses to a series of tailored questions. Sidekick then compares the persona against a programs specific requirements and criteria. By analyzing how the persona aligns with the criteria of each opportunity, Sidekick can recommend the most suitable scholarships or notify of ineligibility. This personalized approach ensures that applicants are matched with opportunities that best fit their unique profile, maximizing their chances of success and optimizing the application process.
Personalized Experiences enhance the scholarship application process by tailoring the submission form to scholarship applicants based on the content provided in the application process. Sidekick dynamically serves up dedicated questions and categories that are most relevant to the individual’s previously entered content. This adaptive questioning technique ensures that applicants are only presented with relevant content that align with their scholarship profile, streamlining the application process. Additionally, Sidekick automatically categorizes applicants based on their responses, facilitating a more organized and efficient review process for scholarship providers. By personalizing the application experience, Sidekick not only simplifies the submission process but also enhances the accuracy and relevance of the information collected, leading to more targeted and effective scholarship.

Auto Screening and Ranking leverages the applicant’s persona to automate the eligibility verification process and implement a scoring system. Initially, it confirms whether an applicant meets the criteria required for each scholarship. After establishing eligibility, this feature utilizes an automated scoring mechanism that aligns with predefined characteristics of the ideal candidate such as GPA, volunteer hours, etc. This assists in the initial vetting of scholarship applicants before a more in-depth committee review.



The Data Consolidation centralizes all data related to scholarship applicants into a single, accessible hub. Sidekick systematically compiles initial submission forms, ongoing data from scholarship recipients, file uploads with embedded viewing capabilities, and aggregates references and nominations. Additionally, it integrates all communication and results associated with each applicant. This centralized approach not only streamlines the management of extensive data sets but also enhances the accessibility and analysis of information, aiding scholarship providers in making informed decisions efficiently.

A.I. and Plagiarism Detection

Sidekick efficiently flags instances of AI-generated content and plagiarized material within scholarship applications. With Sidekick AI, you can easily identify any discrepancies and view the exact flagged content, empowering more informed decisions.

Sidekick’s AI Detection integration scans and analyzes submitted scholarship content, such as essays, to identify the use of AI assistance from tools like ChatGPT. This integration evaluates the text to determine the extent of AI-generated content and provides a percentage score of the flagged AI usage. This scoring system allows scholarship managers to drill down into the submissions to better understand the depth of AI involvement. Armed with this data, scholarship providers can make more informed, data-driven decisions about the authenticity and originality of the content submitted by applicants, ensuring a fair and transparent selection process.

Plagiarism Detection analyzes scholarship submissions to identify and trace instances of copied  publicly available content. This also specifies the source of the plagiarized material, whether it is a direct copy, a summary, or a modified version of the original content. For each identified instance, it provides a detailed report showing the extent of the plagiarism and the exact origin, allowing scholarship managers to assess the authenticity of the work comprehensively.

Scholarship managers can then identify which submissions are above or below the established thresholds. This analytical capability provides a comprehensive overview, enabling informed decisions on the integrity and authenticity of each application, ensuring a fair and transparent scholarship allocation process.

Streamline the process of distributing scholarship applications to review teams. Intelligently categorize applications into specific buckets based on content, applicant skills, and predefined criteria. Submissions are then automatically assigned to reviewers who are best aligned with these categories, ensuring a knowledgeable and relevant evaluation. This system also incorporates randomization to prevent bias and allows for manual overrides to address potential conflicts of interest. This automation ensures efficient, fair, and expert handling of scholarship reviews, enhancing the overall decision-making process.
