A question that I get asked frequently is, “What is the best online site to find scholarships?” There are the big well-known sites like Fastweb.com and Scholarships.com, but here are some other scholarship search sites that share fantastic up-to-date scholarship opportunities that many have not heard about. Save these and check them often!
JLVCOLLEGECOUNSELING.COM – Independent college counselor Jessica Velasco has amazing scholarship resources on her site and adds new scholarships frequently. Find them by deadline date, age/grade level, college major, minority status, athletic ability, and international opportunities.
STUDENTSCHOLARSHIPSEARCH.COM – This site uses only five pieces of information about the student before it cranks out lots of scholarship opportunities: gender, grade, ethnic background, state, and GPA.
COLLEGEBOARD.ORG – Students will find much more than scholarships at this site and bookmarking and checking it often is a smart action. The scholarships search criteria is slightly more detailed, but you will find less advertising and spam associated with this site.
