SSF ID Assignment Tool

Please enter the number of IDs to generate.



The SSF ID Assignment Tool was created to assist the SEBS Scholarship Foundation in assigning unique identifiers to scholarship applicants. We do this to ensure that applicants are given a fair and unbiased chance at receiving a scholarship.

How It Works

In order to keep our applicant's identities safe and our application process unbiased, we remove all Personally Identifying Information from each application and instead use an ID to refer to the application and recipient. This is done before reviewers receive access to the applications, and reviewers do not have access to the ID mappings.

Each ID is 5 characters [0-9, A-Z] excluding vowels. Example: 9X5NK

We calculate each ID at a uniform offset based on the number of names provided (e.g. 5, 10, 15, ...). We then shift IDs by a random amount in order to produce a unique set of IDs each run (e.g. 3, 8, 13, 18, ...). Randomized offsets can be generated for sets of less than 24,300,000 IDs. The generated IDs are then shuffled randomly to prevent IDs from correlating to application submission time.
