The first step in finding funding for your college career is to fill out your FAFSA. Your FASFA will determine if you are eligible for any federal financial aid, such as federal grants, loans and work-study.
Fastweb is the premier online resource for paying and preparing for college. Fastweb members are matched to relevant scholarship opportunities completely free of charge. With roughly 1.5 million scholarships worth more than $3.4 billion, there are scholarships for every student’s educational goals, activities and interests.
The 1,000 Dreams Scholarship provides one-time educational assistance for currently enrolled high school or college-aged women. This can include assistance for needs including but not exclusive to educational conferences, instructional programs related to creative or artistic pursuits, graduate exam application fees, textbooks or tuition. Needs that are ongoing (e.g., utility bills, food costs) or related to medical care are not covered by this fund.
The students eligible for assistance shall be women attending high school or a two- or four-year college/university in the U.S. Students must demonstrate financial need. Applications must include at least one but no more than two letters of recommendation and an essay explaining how the grant would be used. Selection will be based on application contents, financial need and information gathered from letter(s) of recommendation. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received a scholarship from the fund.
Scholarships will be awarded twice per year in the spring and fall following the application deadline and disbursed the following academic semester.
Each award is a non-renewable, one-time award and is to be used exclusively to offset costs and fees related directly to the student’s first year of higher post-secondary education at an accredited institution of the student’s choosing within the United States. Relatives of the American College Foundation Staff are not eligible to apply.
