The hunt for scholarships can seem overwhelming; however, it really isn’t bad if you just take a few minutes and get started.
- The first thing you should do is create an account on Fastweb and browse the other online search scholarship search resources listed below.
- Look at what your school is offering for scholarships. Pay attention to deadlines. Common deadlines are October-November for D1 schools, February-March for D2, and April for JuCos.

- Plan to check this scholarship document weekly. It is organized primarily by date. National scholarships are listed first, then state and then local. However, within those areas, they are organized by date to help you with structuring deadlines.
