Our mission at ScholarshipConnect is have a positive impact on how college-bound students search for scholarships.
ScholarshipConnect was built and is maintained by a small team of 3 friends who became friends thanks to a common interest in big data. While we don't consider a scholarships database to be qualified as big data, we're no less passionate about continuing to grow and improve this free resource.
ScholarshipConnect is an easy way to search for outside scholarships that may be able to complement your financial aid package or even be used towards student loan debt. We aggregate scholarship opportunities from around the web and maintain a browseable database to help students in their search.
Outside scholarships are scholarships funded by organizations other than the student's educational institution. Many are provided by private companies or non-profits.
Many of these scholarships go unnoticed because students who need them most are unaware they exist. We want to help improve this.
