Scholarship Websites

The World Wide Web provides a valuable opportunity for many organizations to let people know about their scholarships. There is some mention of a lot of scholarships that are scattered throughout the Web. You can spend hours and days browsing the Internet. However, there are some scholarship websites that collect information about scholarships and present that information to you more conveniently than having you spend A LOT of time searching the Internet.

Some websites will ask you to create a type of profile and the website will then match scholarships according to your profile. Other websites will list hundreds of scholarships. Some websites will do both. Remember to AVOID giving sensitive information like social security numbers.
