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.

 +You probably know that Fastweb and Finaid promise to send you personally tailored  information about scholarships. But did you know they can also help you find a part time job, get a college internship, interviewing tips and more. And in their “Trending” section you can also find very current and useful information. For example, when we just recently checked they were offering help with tips doing a great interview , how to write a winning essay, where to find scholarships that give you a full ride and, very appropriately for this month, they offer a handy Checklist for August for High School Seniors.

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.
