Scholarship Search Websites:
1) Scholarships.com gives students access to over 3.7 million local, state, and national scholarships and grants. This scholarship search site is known to be commonly used by students and recognized by high schools, colleges, and universities nationwide. Helpful features include a scholarship search that matches scholarships based on a student’s profile, and a scholarship directory where students can search by criteria such as academic major or merit- versus need-based. Additionally, there’s a student resources tab that has handouts and guides to assist students with tracking scholarship deadlines, a scholarship application checklist, and essay-writing tips.
2) Scholarships360.com is an organization that prides itself on carefully picking reputable scholarships to highlight on its site. As students enter the website, they can simply enter their year in school to begin a search. There’s a college-specific scholarship tab that allows students to search by institution, and the list of colleges is continuing to grow. This is a great feature if a student has already been accepted to a college and is interested in scholarship opportunities at that particular institution. Need expert advice? There’s a blog where students can get insights from experts in higher education, financial aid, and of course scholarships!
3) ScholarshipOwl.com is free online scholarship search tool that automates and simplifies the process of finding, matching, and applying for scholarships for college and graduate school.

Based on the information entered, the site will provide students with a list of scholarships for which they are eligible. An additional plus of the site is that ScholarshipOwl can help students apply to multiple scholarships at once with ONE application.
4) Scholly.com has helped its 2 million users earn more than $100 million in scholarships. The company’s website and mobile app provide students with an all-encompassing platform for their scholarship applications.
