Fastweb.org - offers to match student profiles against its database of scholarships and awards. We created a sample profile of an average grad student to get an idea of the opportunities students could encounter there. After bypassing a handful of commercial offers, our graduate student profile yielded 17 possible scholarship options. The list included a few interesting possibilities, and some generic-sounding “contests” that probably wouldn’t be worth the time involved. If you have an extra ten minutes, and don’t mind having to register your information, Fastweb’s service is worth a shot.
