For far too many students, the hardest part of attending college is figuring out how to pay for it. At the same time, money from foundations and corporations go unclaimed because of the difficulties of matching students to scholarships. Enter ScholarshipUniverse. Now available to Union College students, the software quickly and easily matches students with outside scholarships, helping them find the “needles in the haystack” without all the frustration and guesswork. Using an in-depth questionnaire, it builds a profile based on the student’s information and interests. It then narrows down the search, sorting through thousands of vetted scholarships to find the ones they are eligible for and that cater to their interests. Now, students can browse available scholarships, apply, and keep track of their applications in one convenient place.
