RECOMMENDED NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH PLATFORMS:

Regardless of the search platform you choose, the author of “A Comprehensive Review of the Leading Scholarship Search Services,” shares a conclusion about the search platforms they reviewed that can be generalized to many of the scholarship searches available to students. They say that, “not any one of them is able to give a complete and concise scholarship list and results lists differ widely. There are anomalies, mismatched data, and their systems are human-driven, which means there could be outdated and inaccurate information. The scholarship data itself is categorized completely differently from one to the other, and in almost all of them, it’s clear that advertisers figure prominently. Users may maximize the scholarship data and subscribe to more than one. A new email account specifically for use during college and scholarship searches would effectively keep spam and junk out of a personal email account.”
