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 Scholarship opportunities are refreshed monthly so be sure to visit the Featured Scholarships page each month to apply for the highlighted opportunities.

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 make look like a previous scholarship, they are refreshed constantly. 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.
