Introducing the New Fastweb Student Contributor Team
Five students share the inside scoop.
One of the best ways to learn is by doing, and each year the Fastweb student contributor team is doing just that. Our student contributor team consists of real students, both high school and college, that are willing to share their experiences with Fastweb users—their peers. The 2023-24 Student Contributor team is sharing their knowledge by providing their latest ideas and offering support with their voices. We are proud to introduce Fastweb’s 12th annual, 2023-2024 student contributor team. This team focuses on relevant student-focused issues such as the college applications and admissions processes and applying for scholarships, as well as daily high school, college, and graduate student life topics.
From standardized testing and managing coursework to completing or renewing their FAFSA—this year’s student writer team is eager to give Fastweb readers a first-hand narrative of the current happenings in the student world. Fastweb’s editorial team is honored to give these students, also Fastweb users, a platform to share their advice with fellow students and parents.

How You Can Be a 2024-2025 Student Writer?
