Scholarship Search Engines

The below search engines are high quality and FREE websites. REMEMBER: Check various colleges that you are interested in for scholarship opportunities. The college you choose to attend will likely be your largest source of Scholarship money and Financial Aid.  Colleges have multiple sources of aid, which may require various applications:  Merit Based, Departmental, Talent Based, and Scholarships through their Foundation.  There are several free search resources for scholarships and financial aid on this website, in my office, and through colleges you are applying to, so please be cautious about paying money for any scholarship search engine service.

  • College Greenlight: College Greenlight specializes in connecting first generation and underrepresented students to caring colleges and generous scholarships.

  • Raise.me: This is a micro-scholarship website, where students have the opportunity to build scholarship money to certain colleges while in high school. You can earn money for grades, sports, and much more!

  • CollegeBoard Scholarship Search: This search engine requires a student login and profile. Once you enter detailed information about your grade level and extra-curricular activities, the website generates scholarships for which you are eligible to apply.

  • HighFiveScholarships: This search engine requires you to create a profile and is very comprehensive.

  • Chegg Scholarships: This is another scholarship search engine in which you create your own profile and then search for scholarships based on the information you enter. I have heard that this is more accurate than other scholarship search engines.

  • Weird Scholarships: This website has compiled scholarships by unique categories, such as for students with disabilities, students with parents who have disabilities, scholarships for short people, etc.

  • Fastweb Scholarship Search: This search engine requires a student login and profile.
