About Us

Since our founding in 1998, Scholarships.com has helped students find money for college as well as learn about the entire financial aid process. Over the years, we've become one of the most widely-used and trusted free college scholarship search and financial aid information resources on the Internet and have been recognized by high schools, colleges and universities nationwide. We’ve built solid relationships with colleges and universities across the country and want to provide students with the opportunity to not only interact with prospective colleges but to be recruited by them as well.

Simple Search. More Scholarships.

Scholarships.com offers the best AND easiest approach to finding and applying for scholarships for students of all ages. Scholarships.com’s tried, tested and acclaimed scholarship search engine delivers targeted lists of scholarships. There's no quicker, better way to find free scholarship money.

We are the best at what we do.

Scholarships.com has been matching students to scholarships for nearly 17 years. Our scholarship providers LOVE getting your inquiries and applications. We are not just churning out a list of extremely general and competitive scholarships like many others who claim to offer a valuable service but haven’t actually done the work.

We have the most up-to-date database.

Our database is updated daily. We respond to feedback quickly and are constantly morphing into the next, better iteration of ourselves. We keep viable scholarships updated and discard any that appear to be inactive. We understand the scholarship cycle. Most are annual and not all are on the same schedule, so we adjust so you don’t have to.

Scholarships for college students? Absolutely.

College scholarships aren't just for high school seniors. Many of our users are already enrolled in college and are looking for money for the next semester or academic year. Whether you are in high school, college or grad school and regardless of your age, there are scholarships in our database for you.

I’m only a high school freshman. What about me?

Congratulations! You are starting your scholarship search at a time many students are wishing they started theirs! Sure, there aren’t as many scholarships for high school freshmen as there are for seniors, but they are not as competitive, either! Plus, you can get an early start learning about the process of finding free money for college. You will have an edge on all the others who waited until much later to start searching.

It’s too much work. So many essays, videos, etc.

Don’t be discouraged. Be organized and efficient and you are bound to win some scholarships! Select all the scholarships you want to apply for initially and compare them. Certainly, many of them will ask similar questions and you will most likely be able to use a single essay for several different scholarships. Work smarter, not harder!
