The Wall Street Journal does mention fastweb in a 2015 article about getting scholarships even as late as May. Using sites like these can help to speed up a search for those resources. An example was given of two specific banks that were offering $1000 to $5000 to students who applied by mid August of that year. So don’t give up or ignore potentially useful sites like these just because you have already chosen a school.

 +**Update February 2019**
 +As we look through Fastweb and Finaid we feel impressed, but also overwhelmed. I mean, it’s good to know there are over one and a half million scholarships out there …. worth $3.4 billion in aid. But can we really deal with that? They do make a point of narrowing your search results down based on your profile and what you’re looking for . But still…. you should probably join and take advantage of their data, — en if you are  in the  “older, non-traditional or adult”category.  And while you’re at it: don’t don’t ignore articles like [[:scholarship_information|Scholarship Information ]]and [[:scholarship_contests|Scholarship Contests]]; they narrow the field down for you and turn up scholarships without as many students going after them.
