Part 1. We don’t provide scholarship searches. The Financial AID Now™ Merit Max report will show you where 90% of the free money is and that is the colleges themselves. Most of the rest is from the government.
Part 2. Paying a fee for a scholarship search is probably not going to be worth it. In fact, most of the free scholarship search engines you’ll find aren’t really free. Your child will be asked for lots of personal information cleverly disguised as “scholarship matching” questions. But in reality, it’s just mining for data so the information they provide can be used to sell you stuff like private student loans because that’s where the real money for them is!
