    Scholarship Review Process

    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win scholarships in July

    Even though you might be relaxing and enjoying your summer, the new school year will be here before you know it! Dust off your computer and try your hand at writing a 250 word essay or go even further with a 500 word one. The best part is that you can take your time without worrying about school assignments. Be sure to talk about yourself and what makes you the best fit for the scholarship.

    Rising high school seniors

    For juniors who will be rising seniors, this is your last true summer as a high school student. With the college admissions process right around the corner we recommend that students try to finish the following before the school year starts:

    Complete your personal statement

    Finish a draft of your main personal statement for the Common App or the Coalition Application. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but a solid draft will save you a lot of time during your senior year.

    Finish your Common App

    Speaking of your college applications, you should try to finish your main application (whether that is Common App, the Coalition Application, or something else). Going through the entire application and completing the questions shouldn’t take more than a few hours!

    Self-study for AP exams

    If you’re interested in placing out of classes in college, consider self-studying for AP exams. This can help you jump straight to the classes which interest you, and if you’re interested in saving money by graduating early, these AP credits can be very useful.

    Rising college freshmen

    Start a summer project!

    If you recently graduated from high school and are on your way to college, congratulations! You are probably already busy with your summer vacation, but if not, it isn’t too late to start a new activity or project!

    If you take out student loans, do your research

    Paying for college is one of the big things on students’ minds before they start college. If you still need financial aid after your grants and scholarships have been used, you may need to take out student loans. Get the inside scoop on them in our Ultimate Guide to Student Loans.
