Private Scholarship Search Services
Students interested in seeking a private grant or scholarship should check as many sources as possible. There are many free, online private scholarship search sites to assist in your search for scholarships.
FastWeb is one of the best sources for national, local and college-specific scholarships with over 1.3 million scholarship listings totaling over $3 billion.
There are also for-profit companies that offer scholarship search services for a fee. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships does not recommend these services and suggests you thoroughly investigate any for-profit company before submitting any fees to them. You should be aware that scholarship scams do occur and you should protect yourself against these situations.
