Is Digg defining a new direction for the curation economy? And could the new site help us cope with information overload?

Scholarship America, the nation’s largest nonprofit, private-sector scholarship and educational support organization, recently launched its redesigned website at scholarshipamerica.org. Developed in partnership with interactive agency BGT Partners, the user-friendly and intuitive site engages and educates visitors and stakeholders via easy access to information and resources.

“We are extremely excited about our redesigned website because it will help strengthen our efforts to improve education for students across the country,” said Lauren A. Segal, president and CEO of Scholarship America. “A big thank you goes out to everyone involved in making this site a reality.”

Highlights of the redesigned Scholarship America site include: a simplified navigation, social media capabilities, enhanced search functionality and a rotation billboard to share current promotions, events and program information. A prominent call to action provides easy access to donation pages, which will help the organization raise the necessary funds to send students to college.

“We’re honored to be part of such an incredible cause,” said David Clarke, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of BGT Partners. “We share Scholarship America’s belief that tomorrow’s leaders must be provided with the educational tools they need to succeed, and the redesigned website will help to realize this goal.”
