By investing your time in your scholarship search and applications, you’re pushing yourself toward future success. To maximize your chances of finding scholarships that you qualify for and winning, do the following:
- Update your Fastweb profile. How long has it been since you’ve updated your Fastweb profile? Weeks? Months? Never? By keeping your Fastweb profile current, you’re ensuring that we’re finding every award opportunity that you would qualify for in our database. Our database is updated on a daily basis, which means we’re constantly adding new opportunities for our members.
- Set a weekly, or daily, scholarship goal. Make a commitment to yourself to apply to 1 – 2 scholarships per week – or like Jasmin advises, do one task each day to further your scholarship search. By making the scholarship search part of your daily routine, you are ensuring that you’re doing your utmost to pay for college with free money.
- Keep applying for scholarships. Many students make the mistake of limiting their scholarship search to the junior and senior year of high school. However, there are thousands of scholarships for college, graduate, professional, and nontraditional students, especially on Fastweb. Keep applying for scholarships throughout your academic career.
