Our scoring system awarded a score of 62 out of 100 to StudentScholarshipSearch.com.
This straightforward matching process may appeal to students who are tired of inputting the same information over and over again. Beyond matching students with scholarships, though, there is not much additional functionality to the site, as it is essentially a search engine. Students will need to complete individual applications for the various scholarships they find on the site.
Students will be able to find many relevant scholarships on StudentScholarshipSearch.com, although they appear to be the exact same scholarships that can be found elsewhere, on better-designed platforms.
It’s not clear what the total pool of funding is, nor how many different scholarships and scholarship providers are featured on StudentScholarshipSearch.com. Personal information appears likely to be shared with advertisers and third parties, although site users may opt out of some of this data sharing if they take the initiative to find out how to do so.
Although the “featured scholarships” are clearly being promoted as a paid service, there did not appear to be any ads on StudentScholarshipSearch.com, which was refreshing after experiencing the targeted marketing efforts of many of its competitors.
