The Scholarship Search Database for Native American Students is a program whose mission is to provide as much information as needed to the Native American students in their searching for scholarships and financial aids to help them further their pursuit of higher education. The Office of Diversity Services defines its principal responsibility as to educate and enhance the understanding, commitment, awareness, and dedication of the university to pluralism, multiculturalism, and preparedness to be successful in the evolving global village. The project required a good understanding of the Native American culture and technical issues. This project was intended to present the Office of Diversity Services in a unique way to make it stand out and build solid awareness. This paper describes the whole process of the project development, including project analysis, project design, project implementation, and testing.
