Finding and Winning Private Scholarships

Private scholarships are a good way of reducing college costs. But many scholarships aren’t advertised — so they can be difficult to find. This service helps you find, apply to and win scholarships and also provides assistance with avoiding having your college of choice offset the scholarship with reduced financial aid.

Most helpful for 12th-grade students.

Ideal start: January of Senior year in high school
