Fastweb Scholarship Search
About: Fastweb is a free online scholarship search that does require users to create an online account containing their email, test scores and colleges of interest. The information is used to generate lists of potential scholarships for student users including requirements, amounts and deadlines. Fastweb also provides information of financial aid, college loan programs and college match programs. Information for educators and parents is also available on this site.
Fastweb serves as a way for college and marketing partners to connect to students. However, during the registration process, users can indicate whether or not they would like to be reached by these third parties. It is this relationship that funds the site rather than registration fees and it is always free even if a user chooses to refuse contact. Fastweb has been in operation for over fifteen years with success in linking students to scholarships and other forms of financial aid for higher education.
