The BEST Scholarship Websites (2020)- Testing Every Site on the Internet



Sharing buttons:

hey everyone and welcome back to my

channel so today I have my computer with

me because I'm going to be testing out

every single scholarship website on the

Internet so if you're a high school

student or you're a college student like

me but needs to find ways to pay for

college then you're probably going to be

looking for scholarships and if you're

looking for scholarships and you're

probably going to start by searching

them on the internet so typically if you

search scholarships online if you want

to find a whole gigantic list of

scholarship websites to choose from that

will narrow down all of those

scholarships for you and if this is your

first time looking for scholarships and

you know that picking which website

that's the best for you can be pretty

difficult and especially when there's a

lot of options to choose from so today

I'm going to help you guys pick which

website will be the best for you so you

can get as much scholarship money as

possible to find the best scholarship

website on the internet I'm going to be

using my computer to search every single

scholarship website on Google and then

I'm going to use this list of

characteristics I have to rate each and

every website so there are five

characteristics that I think are really

really important if you want to find a

really good scholarship website so the

first characteristic on my list is Kim

that scholarship website match you to

scholarships based on your personal

information so a lot of the time if you

go to scholarship websites they'll have

you put in all of your personal

information and they'll make you create

an account with them and this is a good

thing because there are going to be

thousands and thousands of scholarships

on the internet every single year and so

if you can't use a scholarship website

to narrow

thus thousands of scholarships to see

what you qualify for

then that website is probably going to

be pretty unusable so the second

characteristic I have on here is can

that scholarship website sort out all of

your scholarships by date so something I

found really really annoying when I'm

trying to use a scholarship website is

that all the scholarships are in a

completely random order so I'll see one

scholarship that's due in January I'll

see one that's doing December I'll see

one do with March one in June and that

is just really frustrating to me as

someone who is trying to find a

scholarship maybe for a particular month

or needs to find a whole bunch of

scholarships that are due by July so

it's really important that a scholarship

website can sort all of your

scholarships by date so the third

characteristic on my list is can you

remove scholarships that you don't like

and now you've already applied to so

another really annoying thing I've

noticed is that usually a website will

have me put in my personal information

and all my preferences and then once all

the scholarships are in a list I can't

really remove any of the ones I've

already seen so that can also be pretty

annoying which is why it's on my list so

my fourth characteristic is the amount

of scholarships and this is a pretty

obvious one that I think doesn't need a

super long explanation obviously if

you're taking a lot of time into

searching for scholarships and putting

it all of your personal information and

making accounts you don't want to be

matched with only two or three

scholarships and the fifth and last

characteristic is does that website have

too many sponsored scholarships or ads I

can't tell you guys how many times I've

logged into a scholarship website or

gone on a website only to see the same

exact scholarship pop up like five or

ten times this can get pretty annoying

especially if you don't want to apply to

that scholarship so that's the reason

why this one is on my list so now I'm on

google.com and I'm just going to search

the word scholarships and see what pops

up

so the first thing I see here is

scholarships calm so I'm just going to

click on that one and this is telling me

to log in so I can see that I can create

an account with them and so I'm just

going to fill out all this information

really quick so I'll be right back now

I'm finally on the scholarship matches

website and I can see that I can sort

this by name amount due day and I can

also show favorites and delete it so I

guess for good on the first one because

it did match me by my personal

information and it let me make an

account so I would definitely put a

check by the first characteristic on

this list and the second one does it

sort by date I can see over here it says

sort by due date and if I scroll and I'm

looking right now I can't see July

September October November so they're

all in orders of put a check by that for

sure and number three can you remove

schools I can see over here it has a

heart in the next I'm guessing yes I can

remove them so yes let me remove all of

them and I can heart them oh yes so I

can keep my favorite ones on here and

the fourth one is the amount of

scholarships I am seeing a lot on here

I'm seeing a lot of deadlines berries

but I think it's just because I was

trying to put in all my information

really quickly so I would say that there

are a lot of scholarships on here so

definitely I would put a check by that

one and number five are there too many

sponsored scholarships and ads okay so

eventually if I keep on clicking next

it's going to take me to a sponsored

scholarship and I know because I've used

this website before if I keep on

clicking X on this scholarship over and

over it will still come up no matter if

I click X or hard it or whatever it's

still going to come up

a little bit annoying about this website

so you guys can see if I click apply now

it's gonna bring me to a whole separate

website where I'm gonna have to put in

all my information all over again and oh

my gosh complete the form below to be

automatically entered and these are sort

of the scholarships that you want to

stay away from just because of the easy

ones so right now this website has a 4

out of 5 star rating

which is very very good so I would

definitely check out this website for

sure so now I'm going to go back to

Google and search scholarships again and

see what the second website will be ok

so the second one I'm seeing is this fin

a dot org slash scholarship so I'm going

to go ahead and click on it okay this

website is already looking just a little

bit sketchy to me I'm gonna see where it

has me click OK the best way to find

scholarships for college so right now

I'm going to click on this link and see

where it takes me okay so after clicking

on this link from that website it took

me to something called fastweb.com so I

guess I'm gonna be trying out this one

so I'm going to click sign up so I'm

just going to put in all my personal

information or the quick and I'll be

right back so I just got on from logging

in and putting all the information so I

can see a lot of scholarship

opportunities on here I'm seeing all the

awards all the deadlines and it's asking

me are you interested so I'm assuming

that this will go away if I say not

interested ok so it says I want to

ignore this one ok so it does organize

all the ones that you don't want the

ones you want so that's also really good

and I'm also seeing that it's organized

by deadline which is also really good so

if we're going by this list right here

number one is

website match by personal information

and the answer this one is disastrous

because it did create a profile and it

is matching me to all of these

scholarships so I would put a check by

this one the second characteristic was

does it sort by date and yes you guys

can see it has deadlines all over here

so I would put a check by that one as

well and the third one is can you remove

schools you don't like or have already

applied to and the answer is yes because

I can put them interested on apply that

blonde not interested and the fourth one

is email and scholarships as you guys

can see I'm just scrolling and scrolling

and scrolling and there's a whole bunch

and they're all organized by deadlines I

put a check by this one also and the

last one is is there too many sponsored

scholarships or ads so there's a lot of

sponsored scholarships on this website

but it doesn't look like any are really

in my way so I'm just going to give a

half of a star for this one okay so I'm

going to go back on Google and search

scholarships again and let's see what

the third one is okay unique oh it looks

like I already have an account with

unique O's so I'm just going to login

hopefully I'm saying this right it's

either unique O or Tunica so I don't

know which one but I'm just going to log

it in I already have my password and

stuff on here now I'm going to go to

scholarship match okay cool so you guys

are seeing right here there's a lot of

scholarships that pop up and if you want

to know like more information just click

on it and it's going to tell me the

allege ability additional information

and if I want I can say will apply when

on apply applied or not illegible and

I'm assuming that will take it out and

okay I'm going to go back to the

scholarship match this is sorting all

the scholarships by date so as you can

see there's June there's July

still more July more July more July so

there's a lot it looks like on here and

since my current total is 91 and that's

a lot so that's pretty good so let's go

ahead and rate this one so the first

characteristic was does the Scholarship

website match but personal information

and the answer is yes just because I did

have to log in and I've already been a

user on this website so I already had to

put in all of my information before so I

would definitely put a check by this one

and the next one is does it sort by date

and like you guys already saw it does

sort by date so it's June July okay you

guys get the point so I checked by that

one too and the third one is can you

remove schools you don't like and as you

guys can see over here you can allow

this website to show you whatever

scholarships you want so this one would

obviously have a check and the fourth

one is the amount of scholarships and I

would definitely also put a check by

this one just because if there's a ton

and there's a lot just even for July so

I would definitely say that this one has

a lot of scholarships available to match

you with and the fifth one are there too

many sponsored scholarships are ads so

since I've used this scholarship website

before I can definitely tell you guys

sponsored scholarships will come up in

this list sometimes but if you do say

that you will not apply for that

scholarship it will go away and it won't

come back so it won't be super annoying

for you guys so I would definitely give

this one a check also so now I'm going

to click on this website and go to the

next website so let's search

scholarships again and we'll go to okay

I'm seeing under this one student a DD

gov so I'm going to click on that okay

so when I scroll down on this website

it's saying the US Department of Labor's

free scholarship search tools I'm going

to click on that

okay so okay so it's immediately giving

me a list here it doesn't look like I

can lock in at all I'm not seeing

anywhere to login on here yeah

definitely not I don't think I can login

on this one or put in any personal

information so that's really not a good

sign at all so it does look like I can

filter all these scholarships but I

already know that this website is pretty

much not going to be usable at all just

because even if I did say gender

specific female or even if I put

fraternal organization membership

they're still going to be literally

hundreds and thousands of scholarships

that I'm going to have to sift through

just to see if I am illegible for them

since you can't put in any of your

personal information and you can't

really lock in this website I already

know that this is going to be pretty

unusable which is really sad honestly

because it looks like there's a lot

available on this website

so the first characteristic on here is

can this match my personal information

and can I make an accountant's website

and unfortunately the answer is no so

this one gets no stars so the second

characteristic is can this website sort

by date and it does look like it's

sorting by date which is I guess I put

signs I'm seeing too and I'm seeing July

October so yes it can sort by date

so I've put a checkmark by this one and

the third one is can you remove schools

that you don't like or have already

applied to and since I can't make an

account the answer is no and the fourth

one is the amount of scholarship so for

this one I definitely say yes just

because before when I wasn't on Florida

there were a lot of scholarships just

for the month of June and the month of

June is almost already over so I would

definitely say that this website has a

lot of scholarships available and so the

fifth characteristic is are there too

many sponsored scholarships or ads and

for this and I have a deaf

no just because I'm not seeing any ads

at all on this so I definitely put a

checkmark buy that one so now I'm just

going to go back to Google and see what

the next one is this College Board okay

so I guess this next one is College

Board org so I'm just going to click

start and facing information so I'm just

going to put all this information in and

I'll be right back so I just put all my

personal information in but I wasn't

able to log in or create any account at

all which is a little bit disappointing

but I can tell you guys as soon as I'm

looking at this I can already see a

whole bunch of sponsored scholarships

just because I've used this website a

lot before and I can see some of the

same exact scholarships pop up at the

very beginning so as I'm looking at this

I'm not seeing closing date for this one

the closing date for this one is May

31st this one's April 30th there's not a

closing date for this one the closing

date for this one is February so I can

definitely tell already that this is not

sorting by deadline at all and I'm

looking over here on this side and it

doesn't look like I can change any of

the settings and if I'm looking on the

side right here I can already see that I

can't you know filter any out I can't

tell this how to sort all these

scholarships so for that reason I

definitely would also say that this

website is pretty unusable and if you're

not able to sort any of these out by the

dates of their due you're not going to

be able to find very many scholarships

to apply to so for that reason I would

already say that this isn't a very good

scholarship search tool so I'm going to

go ahead right now and just break this

website so the first characteristic was

can I match this by my personal

information and the answer is yes but I

can't create an account which was the

second half of this characteristic so

unfortunately I can only give this one

half of the star so the second

characteristic was can this websites or

five-day and this one would be a big big

no and that's a really big problem so

for that reason I would say that this

website it's pretty much unusable if

you're trying to find a lot of

scholarships and the third one is can

you remove scholarships that you don't

like or have already replied to and

since I can't create an economist

website the answer would be no so this

one gets no stars and the fourth one is

are there a lot of scholarships

available on this website and the answer

does seem to be yes it does have 46

pages you guys can see that right here

so what the answer that would be yes and

the fifth one is are there too many

sponsored scholarships or ads and since

I can see a lot of the sponsored ones at

the very beginning I would say yes even

though they're not directly labeled out

of sponsored so for this one I would

give it no stars so now I'm just going

to go ahead and see what the next one is

so okay it seemed fast web but I already

did that one okay the next one is niche

so I'm just going to go ahead and click

on that one okay I think I already have

an account so I'll just log in really

fast okay so I just locked in and right

away I'm seeing a couple sponsored ones

and it says I have fifty-seven results

I'm just going to go ahead and scroll

down and see what they are so it looks

like these scholarships are all sorted

by date which is really good so as I'm

scrolling down here I see a lot that

have deadlines in June but when I keep

scrolling

there's no scholarships for July which

is pretty weird just because it's

already the very end of June and if I'm

going to be applying to scholarships in

July I'm probably already going to be

looking for them

and I've only save one for September and

only one for October so that is pretty

weird for me so looking at this website

I think I know enough to braid it

already so the first one was doesn't

match you my personal information can

you make an account and the answer is

yes because you guys just saw me look in

and I did put all my personal

information on here so I would

definitely give this one a check and so

the second one is does it sort by date

and as you guys saw it died sort by

deadline which is really really helpful

and the third one is can you remove

scholarships that you don't like or have

already applied to and it looks like the

answer is No so if I click apply here it

takes me directly to the website and it

does not let me remove any scholarships

that are on here which is really

disappointing and the fourth one is the

amount of scholarships and like you guys

saw I'm seeing a lot for June but I'm

not seeing literally any scholarships

for July which is pretty bad in terms of

what scholarships I can apply to just

because when I'm filming this video it's

already the end of June and there's no

scholarships for July at all so for this

one I would give it no stars so the

fifth and last one is are there too many

sponsored scholarships or ads and

honestly I would probably say yes to

this one just because I've uses website

multiple times and I've pretty much seen

the same exact scholarships on the very

beginning of my little scholarship match

feed so I would definitely say yes

now I'm just going to see if there's any

more left for me to do so I'm going to

put scholarships again so I'm on

scholarship America org and I'm already

not seeing any way to create an account

or put any of my information and so I

honestly don't think I'm going to bother

writing this one at all and also when

I'm looking at these scholarships the

deadlines are not sorted at all so this

is pretty much unusable so I'm just

going to go back okay so I'm seeing

student scholarships org and I think

this might be my last one okay so maybe

I can see that this one is a little bit

sketchy

um I'm not seeing any place to login no

place to put any information I'm seeing

popular scholarships I'm seeing new

scholarships so this one is already

pretty unusable for me and I'm not

really going to bother rating it at all

so it looks like that is my last

scholarship website that I'm going to be

doing today so now that we're done

looking at all the websites I can tell

you guys which ones are my favorites and

which ones have the highest ratings

overall so the three best ones that I

would definitely recommend that you guys

use are scholarships com

unis go and fast webs so I don't

remember exactly what ratings I gave

these websites but I'll definitely put

them in the video right now so that

compared all three of them so these are

the only three websites I would

recommend that you guys use and if you

saw any other ones that you really like

- go ahead and try those out - I'll be

putting those three websites in the

description for you guys to check out so

if you're watching this video right now

when you're trying to figure out how to

get the most scholarship money possible

I definitely recommend that you watch a

video I posted not too long ago about

how I got over one hundred and ten

thousand dollars in scholarships so yeah

definitely check that out if you want to

get the most money possible so thank you

guys so much for watching and I really

hope that you found a lot of really

helpful information in this video about

which scholarship websites you should be

using and what characteristics you

should be looking for so don't forget to

my social media accounts see you guys
