The 10 Best Sites to Look for Scholarships

Posted -

6. College Board's Scholarship Search
Offering 2,300 sources of financial aid and over $3 billion in scholarship awards, the College Board's scholarship search resource could put you on the right track to financing your education—and fast! To start your search, be sure to fill out the detailed questionnaire on the site to narrow down specific awards that satisfy your financial needs. While you're browsing the College Board's scholarship selection, see if you're eligible to apply for the Coca-Cola Community Colleges Academic Scholarship! If you're at a small, local school this $1,000-$2,000 award could be right up your alley.

7. NextStudent.com
Formerly known as Scholarships101.com, NextStudent is an online leader in helping undergrads pay for college tuition, books and more. Like most of the aforementioned sites, NextStudent requires its students to set up a user account complete with details like school year, location and major to pinpoint scholarships for you! One of the scholarship matches that NextStudent found for me? The Stephen J. Brady STOP Hunger Scholarship, a $5,000 award available to any undergrad who has performed community service in the last 12 months, namely in the areas of food service.

8. StudentScholarships.org
StudentScholarships.org is much like NextStudent.com, serving as a powerful search engine for finding relevant scholarships for undergrads. This site is also helpful because it features career profiles for many fields of study, giving its users a good idea of expected salary and job opportunities after graduation. Check out the Dr. Aura-Lee A. and James Hobbs Pittenger American History Scholarship, a $8,000 scholarship (with $2,000 paid annually through a four year college career) if you're a collegiette™ interested in American History and Government!

9. ScholarshipExperts.com

ScholarshipExperts.com is yet another great resource for scouring the Internet for great monetary awards during your undergrad years. Check out the "Courage To Grow" scholarship on the site, which awards eligible undergrads one $500 scholarship every month.
