Our top 5 apps/sites:
College Raptor is a college search directory, but their real power comes in the form of their College Scholarship Calculator app. This app allows you to see a colleges true cost when financial aid and scholarships are factored in. You can compare colleges average financial aid packages and get estimates on how much you can expect to get in scholarships based on your GPA and SAT/ACT test scores.
Scholarships.com gives you access to over 3.7 million local, state, and national college scholarships and grants. After filling out a questionnaire on your academic strengths, interest, activities, and skills, their platform will show you a list of scholarships matched to your profile.
Scholly contains a searchable directory of scholarships along with a matching feature to find you the perfect scholarship to fit your needs. The app also helps you through the process by tracking your progress and deadlines and offers access to winning scholarship essays that can serve as inspiration.
Scholarship Owl allows you to submit for hundreds of scholarships with a single application. The site uses your information to find all of the scholarships in its database that you might qualify for and you are able to easily apply for one or all of them at once. All of their application files feature verified data — real essays, resumes and student advice – that showcase how students don’t have to write what they think admissions officers want to read.
CollegeExpress is created by Carnegie Dartlet, an educational publisher. Pretty good site for both College search and Scholarships. It’s for free, works pretty simple, with a refined search tool.
Findmino.com is a web app that offers an inspiring place to get sorted on career choice. In a pleasant way FindMino helps to make your mind up on where you want to go. And it pre-sorts online information so you can take a ‘look inside’ a job or college major.
