  • Oria Kartina Politeknik Caltex Riau


Scholarships are tuition fees and living expenses provided to students from economically disadvantaged families. SMPN 1 Padang Panjang is one of the schools that provides scholarship assistance to students. In conducting the school scholarship selection process it is difficult because the number of prospective scholarship recipients requires a long time in the selection of prospective scholarship recipients. Selection of scholarship recipients is carried out with several criteria set by the school, namely father's income, mother's income, father's occupation, mother's work, dependents of parents who are still in school and last semester report cards. From the results of the selection based on these criteria, later scholarship recipients can be selected. To support the scholarship admission selection process, the Decision Support System is needed so that the selection process carried out by the school can run quickly and can reduce errors in the selection of students entitled to receive scholarships. This scholarship acceptance decision support system uses the Simple Additive Weighting (SAW) method. After testing using blackbox testing, the functionality of the system runs as expected and can facilitate the user in using the system that has been built.
