CollegeData Site Review


This site provides a scholarship search engine as well as a college match tool and general information about college. Be aware that this website is hosted by a bank and you may get email offers for credit cards, student loans, and other financial products. We advise you to stick with the scholarship search tool.

Select the “Pay Your Way” tab at the top of the page. From the drop-down menu, select “Scholarship Finder Search.” This will take you to a window where you will input your personal information. Answering each question completely will yield more scholarship matches. Once you’ve entered your information, click the FIND button. Each scholarship title is a hyperlink, allowing you to quickly go to a detailed page to check out the scholarship requirements and deadline. Contact information is provided for each scholarship sponsor as well as their URL.

You can go back and revise your personal information, adding new keywords or hobbies, and re-run the search. We suggest you do several searches to increase the number of scholarship results. This site, like many others, allows you to save your search information to a “Data Locker” for easy access in the future. However, you must create an account and login so you can save your search results. Be sure to use the email account you’ve specifically set up for conducting your scholarship research.
