scholarship application

Post by charleyhankins » Wed Jan 15, 2020 10:33 pm

I am asking for some guidance in selecting the appropriate form/database extension to accomplish a specific task.

I want to create a form for students to use to apply for scholarships at the college where I work.

There are a myriad of conditions one must meet to qualify for different scholarships. Such as:
GPA
Placement test scores
Class ranking
Number of credit hours
Overall grade average
... and many more.

I think it might be best to have all the fields listed with checkboxes and the legend "check all that apply."

After the student fills in the appropriate information I would like the next section to display the scholarships which meet that criteria, each with a checkbox for the student to mark if they are interested in that scholarship.

Does that make sense?

Thanks,
Charley

My personal preference is to us Fabrik for things like this, but there are MANY other good forms extensions. see:

Forms Extensions
Don't HACK the Joomla! core, Instead "Extend" and/or "Override."
Stay ON the update path.
