About Us…In the Making

Early in the year 2000, a group of concerned education professionals, parents, and students met to discuss how to better serve the needs of college undergraduate and graduate students and college-bound high school seniors as they look for ways to pay for their education.

After taking a close look at several scholarship search sites already available on the Internet, we recognized that many of those services do not provide quality results. Often the search results generated on those sites are riddled with outdated and inaccurate information, and often the results do not match the student profiles.

Another issue of concern when evaluating the existing sites was privacy. Although the use of profile-matching technology when searching for scholarships requires users to submit personal information, we were troubled that many of the free scholarship search services then sell or distribute students’ personal information without offering students the option to control when and to whom their personal information was shared.

And so, having seen first-hand how difficult (and risky!) it is for parents and students to find genuine leads for scholarship possibilities, we agreed that there must be a way to help. We figured that with the right technology and search processes and the right system for research and data entry, a secure, time-saving and accurate scholarship search service could be built. We then decided to build a–an Internet service that could quickly provide accurate and tailored scholarship search results without compromising the privacy of students and parents.…Presently
