FOUND A NEW WEBSITE FOR SCHOLARSHIIPS FOR TECHNICAL SCHOOLS IN OKLAHOMA—imagineamerica.org

 

Hi,

I’m with Reviews.com, a website dedicated to conducting data driven and unbiased research about topics that can help make an impact in people's lives. We have been fortunate enough to be a trusted resource for families, organizations and educational institution throughout the US.

I wanted to ask you about our recent research to see if it could be a helpful resource for students who are looking to finance their education by using available scholarships that are offered throughout the US. I'm guessing that like us, you too have noticed there is no shortage of information about the numerous scholarships available to students. In the course of our research, we found a common pain point among students was finding tools to sort through all the available scholarships to find those that would be most applicable to their situation. So we spent over 200 hours researching 17 of the most popular scholarship search platforms that are currently available. We analyzed and audited them using five core metrics to identify key functionality, research tools, and useful student resources.

You can see the entire guide along with some of its features here:  copy and paste these fantastic resources

If you find the resources useful, I would appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with you to share our guide on your website so that students and their families can have access to these resources. Of course, you are free to choose the best place for it on your site.

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions. If there's someone else I should reach out to, please let me know as well, I'd be happy to connect with them.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
Patricia

1. Introduction ( This is the first website--)

College is the most expensive it’s ever been. With tuition rates rising an average of 3.5% every year, the average undergraduate now finishes their degree with over $37,000 in student debt.

Scholarships are one of the best ways to reduce these growing costs and scholarship search platforms exist to help students find the most relevant ones. These platforms compile large databases of available scholarships and provide filters to allow students to maximize their searches.

We created this guide to review the best scholarship search platforms and instruct students on how to use them effectively to find as many opportunities as possible.

To determine the best scholarship search platforms, we spent over 200 hours researching 17 of the most popular sites across five core metrics including search functionality, scholarship availability, ease of use, application tools, and additional helpful resources.

The best scholarship search platform was Fastweb. They scored the highest out of all 17 platforms because they were the easiest to use, had the most tools, and had among the most available scholarships with the highest dollar amounts. This search engine is best for most students including high school, undergraduate, and graduate.

We also recommend Cappex. This platform scored consistently high in the most important categories of scholarship availability, ease of use, and tools. It is the best and best for students who want to be able to apply for and track the status of a large number of scholarships.

What we’ll cover in this guide:

  1. The major challenges students face when searching for scholarships
  2. How the right search engine can help students overcome these challenges
  3. What students should know before applying for a scholarship
  4. The most important features of a great scholarship search platform
  5. The best scholarship search platforms of 2017
  6. Advice on early preparation to qualify for scholarships
  7. Tips on applying for scholarships
  8. Our full methodology and scoring process
