We were inspired to create a website for women to find scholarships to pursue their passions. Whether they want to pursue a degree in engineering, medicine, law or history, WeDream will provide them with a list of scholarship and financial aid resources to ensure they can fund their education.
What it does
This is a scholarship crowdsourcing portal for women. Scholarships can be populated by current college students who have been through the financial aid process previously. They can then be searched by women who are currently applying to college or looking for new scholarships to apply to during the school year.
Challenges we ran into
This was the first time we learned to use Rails so we ran into challenges pulling in photos into the website. We also ran into challenges with timing and learning to deal with merges in git.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating mockups, logo and first draft of the website. You can add scholarships and see detail pages for new scholarships.
What we learned
We learned to use GitHub, Rails, and Bootstrap much better.
What's next for WeDream
Continuing to improve the website!
