1. Update Your Fastweb ProfileUpdating your Fastweb profile is one of the simplest ways you can improve your scholarship search. Ideally, you should take the time to update every semester. Make sure you have an accurate school year, GPA and other information is accurate, such as awards you may have received, clubs you’ve joined, extracurricular activities you participate in, etc. The more information you add to your Fastweb profile, the better your scholarship matches will be. Even things that you may not think are important, like your nationality, parent’s jobs or location may qualify you for more scholarships! In addition to updating your profile, there are several other ways to make the most of your scholarship search on Fastweb. Use this article to help maximize your scholarship search.
