Why Use a Free Scholarship Search Service?

Expert Advice provided by

So you think it’s time to look for a scholarship to cover your college tuition bill or to pay for grad school. But should you use a scholarship search service or not? Let’s take a look at what a free scholarship search service like can provide.

First, let’s think about other “services” that you willingly sign up for, whether they come at a cost or are free of charge. Think yard work. Filing taxes. Hair styling. House painting. Car repairs. Fast food. And the list goes on. You often have someone else do the job, whether it’s preparing your will or washing your car, because that someone can do it better and faster than you can do it yourself. Saving time is usually the issue. So is expertise: you usually turn to someone with expertise in order to get results with minimal time invested.

That’s what scholarship search services claim to be: EXPERT at what they do. And what we at do is provide an extraordinarily current and extensive scholarship search service. Why? In one word, empathy.

That’s right — empathy. We know how it feels to be a high school or college/grad student who wants that college education but is looking at a cost of thousands of dollars. We attended universities on scholarship, and it was great! In fact, really began in 1997 when one enterprising college student (who had received ample scholarship dollars) noticed some of his buddies struggling to buy textbooks. They were simply under-financed for their college experience. He grew determined to start a free scholarship search service on the Internet, and others who shared his conviction joined in, including former educators and a college advisor.

Our mission at is to help more students get more access to more scholarships. We’re not trying to fool you or scam you. Why should we? We are a legitimate business operated by professionals who know what we’re doing. We are not a small home-based business that will be here today and gone tomorrow. We have a real commitment to providing the best technology and scholarship data to students, and have been doing this since 1998. We were in the academic and financial aid environment when today’s high school students were in pre-school. We compile our own database of awards — just ask our team of research specialists who do it. In short, we work hard just like you; we’re moms and dads, friends and family members just like you. We believe that we can provide an exceptional service that will genuinely make a difference in the lives of the students who use it. We know how you feel about the prospect of funding a college education, and we’re here to help. That’s it, pure and simple.

Experience has taught us that obtaining scholarship information can be a daunting process. Even if a student is sure that he or she can qualify for an athletic scholarship, for example, where do you start? Call the major universities on the phone? Check out some web sites? Ask around? This is where we come in. We’re pros; we know how you feel; we think we can be your primary resource for finding scholarship dollars. So check out other services if you must, but we think you will return to We’re the experts in this domain, and we’re worth signing up for.
