Fastweb is basically a scholarship middle man. We find the opportunities. Then, our research team checks them out to make sure they are legitimate opportunities. Once we've determined that a scholarship is legitimate, we add it to the Fastweb database, which includes millions of scholarship opportunities. At that point, we match students (that's you) based on their Fastweb profiles. Once students are matched to a scholarship via Fastweb, it is up to the individual student to follow through and apply for the scholarship.It's important to remember that applying for scholarships is a numbers game. The more you apply to, the better your chances of winning. Unfortunately, it's difficult at times to win a scholarship, and not everyone is guaranteed to win one. But people really do win scholarships through our site, and our Wall of Fame proves it highlighting some (but definitely not all) of our scholarship winners.A scholarship is an award offered to students to help pay for college tuition and, potentially, other college expenses.
