dc.description.abstract Financial aid allocation is one of the keys to the success of admission management in universities and institutes. The financial aid policy plays an important role to attract prospective applicants and enhance graduation quality. Therefore, a decision making on financial aid allocation is quite critical and complicated in order to reach administrators’ objectives. This study is proposed to help administrators make rational decisions on financial aid allocation more easily and effectively. Analytic network process and casebased reasoning are the two primary methods used to evaluate the characteristics of applicants and recommend the number of fellowships offered to them. In addition, a data visualization function is provided in order to view and understand historical admission data in meaningful ways, in which the method of drilling down from stacked column charts is applied. Using those methods, the system of this study can support to improve the administrators’ decision making on financial aid allocation. The achievements of the study have contributed to decision support technology a framework for recommendation systems, especially for educational management areas. en_US
