If you have not been on it in a while, when you log in, you may be asked if you would like to do the “on-boarding experience” to which I encourage students to complete. This is an assessment called “Find Your Path” (Career Interest Inventory). You can swipe right and left on a touchscreen and it only takes a few minutes. It will also give you a few celebrities that may be your personality doppelgänger.
Once completed and you are on your Dashboard, on the left side you can select the “Finances” icon and then click “Scholarship Matching.” It will then bring you through a couple handfuls of questions to filter and see what scholarships you may be best qualified for.
** For many scholarships, you will also want to get letters of recommendations. Try to give your letter writers at least 2 weeks notice and include a copy of your resume and any specific information you would like them to include.
In addition, you can also select the “Colleges” icon and then click on “School Search” (and there are also multiple ways to filter to find colleges that may be a good fit for you).
