FastWeb: the fast email fill-up

FastWeb, I’d venture to say, is easily one of the most popular scholarship search engines on the Internet. I used it, and I know of plenty other success stories with students using their free scholarship services.

Here are some notes about my experiences with FastWeb:

There are lots of advertisements to sift through on their Web site. But, I guess that’s the price of using a free service.

At the start, you’ll fill out a very detailed survey about your grades, activities, and experiences, and even about information about your parents. Much of it is optional to fill out though, so in the case that it doesn’t apply to you, don’t answer a particular survey question. The survey is after all there to link you with appropriate scholarship opportunities.

After filling out the survey, FastWeb will spit out a long list of deadlines, the amount of money to be won, what type of scholarship it is, and any additional notes. You can mark certain scholarships as favorites which is useful.

 You’ll receive plenty of email reminders regarding deadlines and details. After a while, I got fed up with all the emails I was receiving, but if you want and need scholarships, it’s definitely worth looking through all the emails you get.

Apparently now they’re offering additional search services to do with internships and colleges. I haven’t used these services of theirs, but if someone knows about these offers, leave a comment!
