Your Information and How We Use It
In order to provide you with scholarship information that best matches your needs, we require certain personal information. This includes name, address, date of birth, gender and e-mail address. You'll also be asked to describe your academic status, including your current school year and grade point average, along with your relevant academic interests.
In addition to the required information listed above, you also have the option of supplying other personal information in order to focus your scholarship search. These additional fields include religious affiliation, ethnic heritage, disabilities, military history and club or organization affiliation. The purpose of this additional information is strictly to fine tune your scholarship search so that you may cast the widest net when looking for scholarship aid.
We are able to provide this free service due to the willingness of our users to be contacted by colleges and our marketing partners. We will keep you informed of the latest scholarship opportunities; plus, you could receive free information about colleges and promotions from top companies that have offers that are relevant to students. If you choose not to receive information at this time, you can opt-out.
