Have It Your Way Foundation

This is the website of one of the many schoalrships I applied for. I am highlighting this one because it was very easy to apply for and I think it is a great opportunity to maybe get money.

This seems like a potential scholarship that I may apply for. I meet all of the criteria, which is why I plan on applying for it when the application opens up in November.

Fastweb: College Scholarship matcher

Fastweb: College Scholarship matcher | College Scholarships and other Financial Aid |

"Search for scholarships with our free scholarship matching service, get student financial aid and find money to pay for college at Fastweb." This website matched me with tons of scholarships after filling out a bio about me and my achievements in highschool. THis website specifically matched me up to the following scholarships I actually applied for: Alert Scholarship, Prowler No Essay Scholarship, and the Burger King Scholarship. This website helped alot.

My thoughts: With a name like "Fastweb" I automatically assumed this website was a scam. It turns out it's not! The only downside to Fastweb is that you have to make an account. By giving Fastweb information that follows internet safety guidlines, it will match you up with scholarships that you already qualify for. Fastweb is a definite time saver.

This I scooped from a past senior student and I found this scholarsip website easy and accessible. I found several scholarships on here that I've heard of or have already done.

Fastweb is easy to use which made finding 2 scholarships easy. That said, others should use it because the popular scholarships are definitely worth filling out. Websites like this, in my opinion, are needed because the more convenient it is for students to fill out the scholarships, the more they will fill out, therefore, adding positivity towards their education and future.

The ABCs of college financial aid - Los Angeles Times

The ABCs of college financial aid - Los Angeles Times | College Scholarships and other Financial Aid |

This article talks about ways to better your chance of getting college financial aid. While it is directed towards parents, I can still lean things form it. It talks about how a student should take AP classes and take the PSAT both of which I have done. One thing it says to do is to check the EFC which I guess is some website which, based on your income, shows your kid's projected amount of financial aid he can be prepared to earn. This article helped alot!

These are the nonmadatory things that would help two years before applying to colleges, however I am applying now doesn't mean that I can not take challenging courses or practice for the SAT

30 Easy Ways to Save Money (and No, you are not doing them all!) - by Dumb Little Man

30 Easy Ways to Save Money (and No, you are not doing them all!) - by Dumb Little Man | College Scholarships and other Financial Aid |

While this article isn't about scholarhsips, it does talk about alot of ways to save money in college and in life. THis was helpful because if I can cut back on my spending then I wont need to depend on college scholarships as much as I do need to now. A few of the things in this article I don't do now that I need to work on are cooking at home, buying in bulk, and regulating electricity use.

However, not particularly about financial aid, adds insight to costs and down living to save for college.

There is a link where you can send one application that gives you the opportunity to win tons of scholarships through one application. There is also a link that sends you to a page that lets you apply for scholarships that apply to local schools. It also shows links to websites that can match you to scholarships.

This website offers plenty of scholarship options that range for everyone to be able to apply for at least a few. It is very easy to use and helpful for all students.
