10 Great Sites for Finding College Scholarships
Finding college scholarships is a frustration that many parents and their students face when looking to win money for school. There are SO many scholarship sites on the internet. Which ones can you trust and which ones are the best scholarship websites?
There are many wonderful websites available for parents and their students who are trying to compile a scholarship list.
Below are what I consider to be the best scholarship websites. Many of these are scholarship matching sites, meaning they will email students when a scholarship is found for them to consider applying for.
Before signing up, however, I highly suggest doing the following:
1. Set up a new, smart email to be used only for scholarship and college correspondence. For example, email@example.com. If the preferred email is already taken, simply add a number or other symbols, such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
2. Fill out student profiles 100%, leaving no blank spaces or unchecked boxes.
3. List all possible majors for more scholarship matches. If a student is unsure of what they would like to major in, they need to check the boxes for everything that interests them.
4. Update information yearly or as it changes, as different scholarships are offered for different levels of students. Also, more matches may occur as students join clubs, volunteer, learn new skills, and take part in different activities.
Here are the best scholarship websites.
If you need specific lists of scholarships, (such as nursing, teaching, engineering, etc.) feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to send you the awards that I have compiled.
Also, make sure you are on my scholarship email list, as I send out monthly lists of scholarships. (Use this link to get on the list.)
TUN (The University Network)
Scholarships.com is also a site that has tons of scholarships, but I find the lists hard to navigate and wade through.
Compiling a list of scholarships for students to apply for is one step in getting closer to winning them, but what really matters is HOW the application is submitted and what can be done to set it apart from the thousands of other applications.

The Ultimate Scholarship Book is the perfect companion to my ebooks. Find thousands of scholarships in the big green book and learn how to win them with the strategies found in How to Win College Scholarships.
For financial aid help, I highly recommend this book:
Monica Matthews is the author of How to Win College Scholarships. She helped her own son win over $100,000 in college scholarships and now shares her expertise with other parents and their students. She truly has “been there, done that” in regard to helping parents and students navigate the scholarship process.
Her method of helping students in finding college scholarships, writing unique and compelling scholarship essays, creating amazing scholarship application packets, and more have taught desperate parents to help their own students win thousands of scholarship dollars. She teaches them how to apply S.M.A.R.T. with outstanding results.
Monica’s scholarship tips have been featured on many prominent websites, and she has been dubbed the “Go-To” expert on college scholarships.
My daughter is a freshman in college at a prestigious school in Texas and majoring in broadcast/journalism. She has 3.8 GPA. I would love for her to earn an Academic scholarship since she has worked so hard and clearly deserves it. Do you have any websites or information I could use to forward to her?
Thank you so much for your assistance!
Hi Debi, have you checked the website of her college? They should have a whole page dedicated to scholarships, with many for admitted students and current students. She can also check with the professors in her major and and ask them about scholarships. Is she signed up at Fastweb.com? There are lots of scholarships for current college students available and they will match her up and email her when one becomes available that they think she qualifies for. The Scholly app is another good one for college students. She can also ask at her college financial aid office and let them know that she is in need of additional funds to help pay for school and see if they can do anything for her. I hope that helps!
I’m saving this list because my daughter is just now entering high school. We will need this sooner than I’m ready to admit.
Yes, you will! I highly encourage you to search for scholarships now, as there are many available for all levels of high school students.
My Daughter will continue IB program in Exeter College, UK. They give very little amount as a scholarship and we need more. She will go there and live with a hosted family and we should pay for this as well.
Any quick and easy scholarship we can get?
Thank you for your help and reply.
