The Point of Contact (POC) for a site can request that the Award content type be enabled. The Award Content Author role can be assigned by a site manager.
The Award content type is used to display information on funding opportunities, such as awards, bursaries, and scholarships, for undergraduate students. Using the awards database, students can filter or search for all active funding opportunities that are relevant to them.
Site Managers can create new Award terms in Vocabularies under Dashboard.
