How to Maximize Your Chances of Winning

The best way to increase your chances of winning any scholarship is to apply often. Fastweb’s Featured Scholarships are refreshed monthly so be sure to visit the Featured Scholarships page each month to apply for the highlighted opportunities. At the same time, you shouldn’t only apply to Featured Scholarships. They are great scholarship opportunities to sprinkle into your schedule when you’re busy. And you should apply for every scholarship on the list each month. However, do not neglect your Scholarship Matches on Fastweb. Within this list, you’ll find scholarships that are specific to you, giving you a better chance of winning. They may also have smaller applicant pools than Fastweb Featured Scholarships, increasing your odds of winning as well. When it comes to the scholarship search and application process, make sure you’re taking a well-rounded approach.

Are Featured Scholarships Too Good to Be True?

Here's the deal: the easier the scholarship is, the more likely it is that more students will enter to win. So, since the majority of Featured Scholarships are generally quick and easy to enter, there's a lot more competition to win. But, that doesn't mean that students don't win. You can even view previous scholarship winners on Fastweb's Scholarship Winners page. All of the scholarships on Fastweb, Featured or otherwise, are 100% legitimate. We know this because we have a team dedicated to researching and verifying scholarships within our database. Many of the Featured Scholarships come from scholarship providers that renew often. That means that, while it may look like a previous scholarship, they are refreshed constantly. They are also scholarship providers that we have a great repour with because we work with them frequently. As a result, high school and college students alike should check back monthly (at the very least) and take the time to apply for each opportunity. Also be sure to check Featured Scholarships each time you see us share on social media. Consider it your friendly, monthly reminder to apply.
