    Where do you look for scholarships?

    My thought is that, if we pool our resources, the entire community might benefit. So, what are some of the websites you visit when you are looking for scholarships? I'll start off with a few sites I found:

    * FinAid! http://www.finaid.org/

    * Federal Student Aid https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/

    * Cappex https://www.cappex.com/

    * College Board https://www.collegeboard.org/

    Anyone know of any others?

    Re: Where do you look for scholarships?

    Nice idea. I'm sure it'll help others learn about resources they didn't consider before.

    A good place to look is under the "external scholarships" section of any college's website.

    Hi Pr04Tennis,

    This is a topic that pops up from time to time, but that is a good thing with the new users coming in everyday. Your list is a very good start and I have been using some of them for years. I would also add:

    Fastweb

    Petersons

    Niche

    I also highly suggest a book called The Ultimate Scholarship Book by Gen and Kelly Tanabe (who also have a scholarship opportunity available)

    Re: Where do you look for scholarships?

    It doesn't surprise me that this topic pops up now and then, Mince. But, as you point out, new people come on all the time. And, may I add, there are new sites that pop up on the internet, too.

    It is too bad postings like this can be made to "stick" somewhere. I think they would be a valuable tool for not only for current Cnetters, but future ones as well.

    Re: Where do you look for scholarships?

    Thank you everyone for the websites, I think I will visit some today and check them out. I have checked out the ones that my school provides but alot of them on the internet are usually scams. I dont know which ones to trust and which ones are legit. I was lucky to come upon collegenet and at first I was ify about it as well.
    I hope everyone benefits from this post. I started one when i first started but didnt get many ideas.
