Best Scholarship Websites
Here are the best scholarship websites that you have not heard of
As we know, there are lots of websites for scholarship seekers. While we strive to make Scholarships360 the best, we know that there are some other great scholarship websites out there. In this guide, we discuss some worthwhile websites to check out.
Below you will learn about some of our favorite scholarship websites and why we think they are useful for your scholarship toolbox!
Top scholarships websites for students:
What’s Bold.org all about? Bold.org is like the Common Application for scholarships. Students create their own profiles and apply for scholarships sponsored by Bold.org, as well as other funders.
Why we love Bold.org: Bold.org has unique scholarships that you won’t find elsewhere. The user experience is great, and you never have to worry about spam.
What’s Raise.me all about? Raise.me allows students to receive “micro-scholarships” for top colleges and universities that are Raise.me partners. These micro-scholarships are awarded to students who receive an A, join a new club, or accomplish something special in high school. The idea is that these micro-scholarships add up and can prove to be quite valuable.
Why we love Raise.me: This is a really unique scholarship website and helps students turn their accomplishments — large and small — into money to pay for college.
What’s Scholarship America all about? Scholarship America is a non-profit that administers scholarships for companies, foundations, and non-profit organizations.
Why we love Scholarship America: Because Scholarship America administers all of the scholarships on their website, you can rest assured that their scholarships are legit and vetted.
What’s Scholarships360 all about? Scholarships360 helps students pay for college and graduate school debt free through personalized scholarships and expert advice.
Why we love Scholarships360: We will try to be modest here! At Scholarships360, we focus on bringing you relevant, vetted scholarships. Students, parents, and counselors can also get personalized scholarships and advice delivered via email. While we know that we are not completely unbiased, we do aim to provide the best possible user experience for students!
Your college’s website
While private scholarships are great, the majority of scholarships and financial aid students receive generally comes from specific colleges. This is why you should spend time researching scholarships and financial aid opportunities on specific college websites!
What about Fastweb or Scholarships.com?
You are probably wondering, “where is Fastweb?” or “how come Scholarships.com is not listed?”
This is fair question. After all, Fastweb and Scholarships.com are two of the most popular scholarship sites out there. We did not think they were worth profiling because scholarships on Fastweb and Scholarships.com are “gated.” This means that students have to create accounts before accessing the application link. This creates a less-than-ideal user experience for students.
