FastWeb Scholarship Search Engine
Scholarship Search with Fastweb
Everybody wants to go to college for free and, at Fastweb, we’re in the business of helping students achieve that dream through offering a simplified college scholarship search. From the start, our goal has been to eliminate the “search” from the scholarship search, allowing us to find scholarships that match the qualifications and interests of each student that we serve. Ultimately, we save our students time, match them to college scholarships that they may not have otherwise found and keep them organized throughout the whole process.
For over 24 years, we have worked to help students discover scholarships that are targeted to their strengths, interests and skills. We also assist students in discovering the right college for their budget, making tough financial aid decisions and finding internship opportunities that will help them bridge the divide between college and post-graduate life. Finally, we give students the option to pay for college with part-time jobs by offering part time job search and advice.
Our commitment to helping students find, choose and pay for college with college scholarships has been the bedrock of our business, but we’ve grown to be so much more. Today, we are the premier online resource for paying and preparing for college. However, we don’t just excel at this; we created the online scholarship search world.
