For graduate students seeking scholarships, I highly recommend checking out theWASHBOARD.org. I registered on this site last week and found it was very user-friendly. After filling out a simple questionnaire about my educational background and interests, it highlighted some scholarships I may qualify for, based on my answers to the questionnaire. I haven’t received any unwanted emails from this site, and it has proven informative in providing me with details about the opportunities, such as what the deadlines were and allowing online access to the application forms, along with a link to print out a PDF of the forms for those who prefer to mail in their applications.
A word of caution: There are two websites that may be confused with theWASHBOARD.org: washboard.org (without the “the” in the beginning) and washboard.com. Ensure that you are at theWASHBOARD.orgto avoid any confusion.
Another good website for scholarship opportunities can be found at http://www.seattleu.edu/albers/gradfinancing/
This site, run by the Albers School of Business and Economics, is a great resource with local and national scholarships, along with links to information about federal student loans and fellowship opportunities.
