Websites for finding a college scholarship

According to wikipedia A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, which usually reflect the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. Scholarship money is not required to be repaid.  As a mom I am always thinking about ways to help my family or friends financially and I know first hand that college can be ridiculously expensive.   I am not sure if everyone know we have some options to help offset or in some instance provide free help for getting an education.

It doesn't matter what age you choose to go to college or what your skill are, there is no wrong way to learn and with this list of websites that I found thanks to clark. com  you may be well on your way to starting the process of finding an amazing resource for scholarships like Danny Errico. I am going to pull some of them from this article and include them here for quick reference but please take the time to read more about them.

Fastweb hosts more than 1.5 million scholarships that provide more than $3.4 billion in funding. Once you create a profile, the site’s search feature will help you find the most accurate matches that fit your needs. Your personal profile is how the site helps you find pretty much exactly what you’re looking for.

While the College Board is known for its college-readiness tests, it also has an arm that focuses on scholarships. Big Future hosts scholarships, as well as other financial aid and internship information from more than 2,200 programs — totaling nearly $6 billion. In order to get the most accurate search results, it’s critical to fill out as many details as you can in the profile that’s used for searching.

Moolahspot isn’t as robust as some of the other scholarship databases, but in the search for a college scholarship, it’s another option to help you find extra money.

Cappex hosts a database of more than $11 billion in scholarship opportunities. Once you create a personal profile, you can search for opportunities that directly match your strengths and skills. Plus, Cappex has a tool that will calculate your odds of getting into a certain college before you even apply.

Peterson’s hosts $10 billion in scholarship opportunities and provides information to help you in your search. Once you fill out a short survey, you can filter your search results so they’re tailored to your specific needs.

According to the official Student Aid website, this free tool is a great resource for students to search more than 7,500 scholarships, grants and other various types of financial aid award opportunities.

The CareerOneStop tool allows you to:

Look through the site’s entire inventory of scholarships, arranged in order of closest deadline.
Narrow your list with a “search by keyword” option: Just enter a keyword about the type of award you’re looking for.

Use the filters to see opportunities for only certain types of awards, locations, level of study, and more.
