The research activities in a higher education institution (HEI) is highly dependent of the development of research projects. Most times, these projects have at the core of their workforce scholarship fellows financed by the project budget and responsible for the execution of very specific research tasks. The procurement process leading to the contracting of these fellows evolves several bureaus, from several organic units of the HEI, in a complex and long process. This work reports on the development of system to support this process. The solution was integrated in the HEI ecosystem in an harmonious manner, by implementing the necessary features and using the other HEI systems features when possible. After an year, the scholarship management system has proved a success, providing the user features to conduct the process and the management analytics to proper support the management and governance of the research area
