Scholarship Resources

25 Aug

I’m guessing that like us, you too have noticed there is no shortage of information about the numerous scholarships available to students. In the course of our research, Reviews.com found a common pain point among students was finding tools to sort through all the available scholarships to find those that would be most applicable to their situation. They spent over 200 hours researching 17 of the most popular scholarship search platforms that are currently available. They analyzed and audited them using five core metrics to identify key functionality, research tools, and useful student resources.
