It’s getting to be that time of the year where those of us who are college-bound are scrambling for ways to pay for our horrifyingly expensive education. Even if you are not college-bound yet but are starting to stress about the college application process Looking for scholarships, grants, internships and even just plain old advice can sometimes get overwhelming, so I have composed a list of seven sites that will hopefully make your search a bit easier.
CollegeWeek Live is a site that makes it possible for prospective students to search for scholarships, gain information on financial aid, and connect to counselors who can aid you in your college search. They also host live chats with several universities a day, allowing you to ask questions directly to a representative for your desired school.
College Xpress has over 4 million subscribed users and for good reasons – this site composes over 4000 college profiles and $7 billion in scholarships into one comprehensive site. Simply sign up using your email.
AdmitSee not only aids you in the college application process with interactive search engines and lists scholarship opportunities, but also runs its own blog.
Scholarship Owl allows you to search for hundreds of scholarships with just one simple registration. I have used this website personally; this site keeps me updated on available scholarships through email alerts.
Scholarships.com is one of the biggest and best-known scholarship search engines on the internet.
Scholarship America particularly focuses on the urgent need on funding for higher education in the United States. They highlight the issues of the outrageous achievement gap and the astronomical amount of loans that American students now face: more than $1.2 trillion. Not only do they make searching for scholarships accessible to students in need, they urge students of all backgrounds to join the movement by donating or volunteering.
Fastweb makes it simple to find scholarships to match your college interests: simply create a profile and interact with their extensive database of scholarship programs.
