Scholarship Winner Explains How to Win in 2023
Congratulations on your scholarship win, Natalia!!
Beginning in November 2022, Fastweb celebrated National Scholarship month with a $1,000 scholarship sweepstakes opportunity. For a month, Fastweb users were encouraged to increase the number of scholarships they applied for by evaluating their monthly scholarship application goals. Entering the sweepstakes daily and answering a simple multiple-choice question is one-way students can level-up their scholarship application goals. Fastweb is proud to introduce the National Scholarship Month Sweepstakes contest winner, Natalia Nieves. A current high school senior at Morris Catholic, she calls Succasunna, New Jersey home.

We asked Natalia a few questions about her scholarship experiences, and we believe students could benefit from her wise advice. Let’s hear how she used Fastweb’s latest sweepstakes to earn money to pay for college: Why did you apply for this scholarship? Natalia: To help with college expenses.

Stay tuned for more easy-enter scholarship sweepstakes in the future, too! Previous winners have also shared some great tips to win scholarships: Jasmin Little, Fastweb’s $1,000 Scholarship Goal Crusher Sweepstakes winner said, “The best-underrated advice is to keep track of how many scholarships you enter. I have a spreadsheet with one column for deadlines, another for the link, and ones that give the requirements (word count for an essay, letter of recommendation, etc.) This helps me know which deadlines are coming up compared to the effort required for entry.” Therese Loise Dy, Fastweb’s August 2021 $1,000 Scholarship Success Sweepstakes winner said, “I recommend applying to at least four scholarships per month, one for each week. Four may not seem like a lot, but that is four more than you would have had compared to if you started searching closer to the end of the month and applied last minute!”
