Their stories

  • Florida Space Grant Consortium

    Mark absolutely saved our lives! He has a great personal touch and whenever we have questions, he responds within a few hours.

  • Alabama Space Grant

    Our paper-based system of collecting applications was not working anymore. After speaking with a few of my colleagues who have used EPSS, their services came highly recommended.

  • West Virginia Space Grant

    We were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of student tracking and needed to find a software program capable of handling it all

Our Story

Education Programs Support Services (EPSS) provides straightforward yet powerful technical support to education programs of all sizes across America. EPSS was the brain child of an education program manager working directly with participants but wrestling with the day to day demands of managing the paperwork involved in running excellent programs. Knowing that there was a better and more efficient way, EPSS was launched in 2006 to provide easy to use but powerful web-based tools to streamline the scholarship application process and the longitudinal tracking of participants.
