CollegeNET, Inc. is a developer of web technology for higher education and non-profit institutions and operates the Mach 25 scholarship search engine.
At the top of the page, click on “Scholarship Search.” This search engine gives you a choice between conducting a keyword search or a profile search by inputting personal data for better scholarship matching.
A recent keyword search yielded 319 scholarship results using “women” as the keyword. Trying “female” as our search term yielded 194 scholarships. A large number were for college-specific scholarships offering female students considerable financial awards (up to full funding for a 4-year degree). We suggest that you repeat the “Keyword Search” using one keyword at a time. Keywords that describe you are best. For example, you might try “women,” “Undergraduate,” your state, your college of choice, your major, your hobbies, your extracurricular activities, your ethnic background, and more. Each time you run a keyword search, you can save that scholarship. The results page provides you with a link to the page containing a summary of the scholarship, contact information, award information and statistics, sponsor information, and URL.
Using the “Profile Search” is another way to generate a list of scholarships tailored to your specific needs. By clicking on the tabs below Mach25/Profile Search, you will be asked to provide General information, Residence, Personal information, Academics, Interests, Employment, and Miscellaneous information. Again, the more details you provide, the more scholarships will be returned, with better eligibility matching.
