About
Being able to give back to others is important to me. I want to empower and inspire others to be the best version of themselves. I want others to reach their potential so we can maintain a cycle where we all triumph and accomplish our goals by supporting each other. Helping us create a better world of knowledge and understanding." Going to college was very important to me. I wanted to have an education that no one could take away from me. I understood that no matter what happened in life, I needed a strong knowledge foundation to be able to make a positive difference, help others, and accomplish my goals. Now, I help others get an education that they can use as a tool and resource to accomplish their life goals. It is extremely important to have a college education, not only because it increases our chances for career and financial success, but it creates opportunities for positive change.

If you're unsure whether or not a course you're taking is A-G eligible, you can use this site to find out. Start by searching your school to view a full list of all courses that course meets A-G eligibility. This site will also tell you what category of A-G your course meets and how many years are required and recommended for each university. 

This is a great way to plan your s
emesters or year as well!

Scholarship Databases

Scholarship Databases 

Have a question about something on this page or need help? Send us a message and we'll help you get college ready! 

With Scholarships.com hosts a database of 3.7 million scholarships worth roughly $19 billion in financial aid. You can search the website’s directory without a profile, but you’ll need to create one to find out if you qualify.

Fastweb database includes 1.5 million scholarships worth more than $3.4 billion. Once you create an account, you can log in and discover matches based on the information you’ve shared.
The scholarship finder even allows parents to create separate accounts.

Cappex claims to have more than $11 billion worth of scholarship options available. Before you sign up, you can search the directory based on deadline, ZIP code, gender, ethnicity, school year and other traits. You can even weed out lower-paying scholarships by setting a minimum dollar amount for your search.

The Niche scholarship finder is unique in that it rewards you simply for opening an account. As soon as you complete the process, you’ll be entered to win a $2,000 scholarship that doesn’t require an essay. Just provide your name, birthdate, email address and year in school. Scholarship categories are broken down into new or popular scholarships, aid based on your state or major, scholarships for minorities and more.

Chegg primarily offers textbooks, flashcards and other study resources for college students, but it also has a scholarship finder that lists over 25,000 options. On a basic level, you can look for matches based on your school year, your age and your GPA.
