Hi, my name is Julie Aterspack and I’m with Reviews.com, a website dedicated to conducting data driven and unbiased research about topics that can help make an impact in people's lives. We have just finished a study that I wanted to share with you to see if it could be valuable for students and families in your community.
I'm guessing that like us, you too have noticed there is no shortage of information about the numerous scholarships available to students. In the course of our research, we found a common pain point among students was finding tools to sort through all the available scholarships to find those that would be most applicable to their situation. So we spent over 200 hours researching 17 of the most popular scholarship search platforms that are currently available. We analyzed and audited them using five core metrics to identify key functionality, research tools, and useful student resources. You can see the entire guide along with some of its features here:

We recently partnered with a new website that has published a series of financial literacy guides for students and their parents. It was created to help parents and student understand how to instill positive credit awareness and responsible financial habits.
