CSS PROFILE or FAFSA: Which Should You Use?

Now that most high school seniors have completed their college applications (or should be getting close to finishing them), it’s time for them to turn their focus on another important aspect of the college admissions process — financial aid. Most students are familiar with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), but there’s another form that many may not even know exists. It’s called the CSS/ Financial Aid PROFILE®. And, depending on where students enroll, they may have to complete one or both forms.

Not sure which one is right for you? Head over to Unigo.com and check out its latest blog post, “4 Ways the CSS PROFILE Differs From the FAFSA.”


I Need a ‘Do-Over’ Now!

I Need a Do-Over Scholarship How many times have you turned in a paper or finished an exam, only to realize moments later that you forgot an important element? Or worse, when is the last time you said something mean or cruel to a friend or family member and then wished immediately that you could take it back? These are moments that scream for a ‘do-over’, but life doesn’t usually work that way. Instead, we have to deal with the consequences (a failing grade on the paper, lost or damaged friendships, etc.) and hope that we learn from our mistakes.

Getting Lost in a Book May Help You Win a Scholarship

Steacie LibraryThe introduction of the Internet has changed many things in our lives, such as how and where we access information. Not too long ago, students wandered through aisles of books in a building called a library and used a manual card catalog system to locate items on the shelves. They sat in beanbag chairs hunched over their favorite novels or snuggled into comfy couches to read. Now, everything is digital and a great majority of us get our information from the world-wide web. Visits to the library have become rare, especially after the invention of the Kindle and the Nook. We can now access our favorite stories anywhere at any time.

Although how we access books has changed, many of us still pursue our love of reading. Did you know that getting lost in a book might actually help you win a scholarship? It’s true. There are scholarship programs out there for avid readers, as well as those who love to write novels and stories too. Continue Reading…


Whacky Scholarships in Honor of Halloween

Search for Scholarships on Halloween I love this time of year; the weather gets cooler, the leaves change color and there’s a feeling of fun in the air. It’s also the time of the year when everyone gets to be a kid again. Some people dress up, play pranks and act just plain silly. Halloween allows others to channel their inner ghouls and goblins, and for a while, lets them believe that magic does exist. For some, this feeling remains throughout the year. So, in honor of Halloween, let’s look at a few whacky scholarships that reward those who keep the spirit of Halloween alive year-round.

Are you a fan of Star Trek? Planning to go to this year’s Halloween party as Spock, Captain Kirk or a Klingon? Well, if you live and breathe all things related to Star Trek, you may just win a scholarship for college too!
