What good is your Fastweb account if you fill out a profile but never apply for a scholarship? We know you’ve got a lot going on – classes, extracurricular activities and homework – but when it comes to paying for school, you need to make time for scholarships too.
Fortunately, we at Fastweb know how busy you are, and we’ve made upgrades to your scholarship matches over the years to help you save time. Check out how our Scholarship Dashboard works in your favor.
Now, each time you log on to Fastweb to view your Scholarship Matches, the first thing you’ll see are any new scholarships that you’ve been matched to since you last logged onto the site. With this upgrade, you’ll be able to get right down to business and take action on each of the listed scholarships.
If you don’t have any new scholarships listed, you can either update your profile or check out scholarship matches that you’ve seen before but haven’t applied to just yet.
All Scholarship Matches
In addition to seeing your new Scholarship Matches, you can also check out those matches that you’ve seen before but have not yet passed their deadline – your current scholarships. To learn more about each of these scholarships, simply click the title for a full description, award amount, deadline and a button that you can click in order to apply to that particular scholarship.
Once you’ve seen your new or current Scholarship Matches, it’s time to take action and select which scholarships you will or might apply to and which scholarships you’d like to discard on your will not or not eligible lists. Taking this step will help you better organize your Scholarship Matches so you can get right down to business when you log onto Fastweb.
Now, winning scholarships is a numbers game. The more you apply to, the better your chances of actually winning. By using the Scholarship Dashboard, you can up your scholarship game by organizing all of your scholarships in one place, applying to only those that are the best fit for you and increase your odds of winning by saving time and applying to more scholarships.
Our Scholarship Dashboard not only provides a way to pay for school but time, which are both vital assets in helping you make the most of your scholarship search. Get started now on Fastweb by visiting your Scholarship Matches.
