4 Ways to Make the Most of My Fastweb
Notice anything different about us? Whether you’ve observed or not, My Fastweb has gotten a huge face-lift, and it’s not just so we feel a little younger and fresher. The new interface will actually help keep you better organized so that you can apply for more scholarships and hopefully win more money to pay for school too. But enough about our new look – let’s take a deep dive into the new tools so that you can maximize your chances of winning scholarships with Fastweb.

1. Scholarship Summary

We know that the main reason you’re here at Fastweb is to try to win scholarships to help pay for school, and like a good friend, we’re featuring that relevant information front and center for you. When you log into the new My Fastweb, you’ll see new scholarship matches since you last logged in, the total number of scholarships you have been matched to as well as the total number of dollars you could win if you applied to every single scholarship on your matches page. From there, you can either check out your Scholarship Matches or update your profile with any new information you may have to share. For instance, if you have a new GPA or you joined a new club or organization at school, you need to update your profile! We’ll be able to find even more new scholarship matches for you, which will in turn drive that total number of scholarship dollars even higher.

2. Upcoming Deadlines

We keep track of your upcoming deadlines in two different places for a few reasons. First, it is our goal to keep you as informed as possible about the scholarship opportunities at your fingertips. Second, we’re doing our best to help keep your organized in your scholarship search and application process. The more you see the deadlines, the better you’ll be able to meet them. Finally, we don’t want you to miss a single scholarship opportunity, and repetition is key to remembering so you’ll be able to see your upcoming deadlines on My Fastweb as well as on your Scholarship Matches page. Check out your list of upcoming deadlines.

3. What’s Trending

Lastly, you can view all of the cool content that other Fastweb members are reading most. Whether it’s tips on how to get into college, expert advice on maximizing your aid eligibility or recent college graduate resume samples, you’ll be able to benefit from the expertise of Fastweb editors and Student Contributors. Not to mention, Fastweb is a community of students that are just like you as well as very different from you. Within our content, Fastweb members can engage with each other and leave opinions or helpful tips and tricks in our comments section at the end of each article. With that, be sure to check out trending topics on Fastweb in addition to your Scholarship Matches.

4. Part-Time Job Matches

You can find great part-time jobs available near you on Fastweb, powered by Monster. Check out your part-time jobs matches now or search for great part-time jobs hiring in your area. You can also indicate jobs you're interested in and save them so you'll never miss out on a great opportunity. We hope our new look and feel reinvigorates your scholarship search and helps you down a path of applying and maximizing your chances of winning scholarships. And don’t forget – at Fastweb, we value our members’ opinions and enjoy creating a user experience that is simple, yet engaging.
