Here at Free College Blog we’re rolling out the new custom college scholarship search. The search is still in its beta phase, but it is fully functional and should be showing results from the most trusted and complete websites on the net, particularly scholarship and grant results from educational and government websites.
Google’s search technology is great. Instead of paying money for a financial aid finding service or registering for a commercial scholarship search engine, this tool will allow Free College readers to thousands of specific and targeted sources of tuition without ever costing a penny or requiring a user registration form.
What are you waiting for? Try it out!
The more specific and unique the search terms, the better the scholarship. Look for state and local scholarships, or scholarships related to your hobbies, favorite sports, career plans, or current employer. Think about adding terms for any medical conditions, unique personal situations, gender, ethnicity, religious denomination or other philosophy or belief.
We will be adding more domains to the list and if you have one you’d like to see included please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here.
Since we’re adding to the list, it is up to you to narrow it down. Get the results as specific as possible with additional search terms. A major-specific scholarship is good, but a local major-specific scholarship is even better. It is a much better use of time to put a few careful applications in to less competitive programs than it is to rush two dozen applications to nation-wide contests.
Think about what makes you unique as a student and a person – then find the foundation or fund that wants to reward that with free money for college!
