How to Find Merit Scholarships

I am teaming up with Debbie Schwartz of to offer a webinar called How To Find Merit Scholarships.  Debbie and I are both very passionate about this topic and come at it from slightly different angles.  My specialty is finding the actual merit scholarships offered directly by colleges. Debbie comes at it more from the side of researching college data to find colleges that are more generous in offering merit-based aid. We believe these two approaches can be successfully combined into one overall college search strategy.

In this webinar, we’ll show you how to do the research to uncover the colleges that can be more generous to your student. We’ll help you answer the following questions….

How can you determine a college’s generosity before your student applies?

What schools are likely to give your student the most merit scholarships?

What is the Common Data Set and how can it help in your college search research?

What are full ride and full tuition scholarships?

Do only high achieving students receive merit scholarships?

Do colleges offer better merit scholarships for freshman vs. upperclassmen?

I will review how to use the tools I offer, the Full Scholarship List and to help you find great merit scholarships.

There will be plenty of time reserved for asking the questions you have that we did not answer in our presentation.

If you do not already have a copy of my Full Scholarship List, we are including it in the price of the webinar. If you do have the list, you can use the coupon code Webinar Discount to knock $7.99 off of the price.

We are charging $29.99 for the webinar, but this is like getting an hour of consulting to arm you with what you need to successfully find great college deals at a price much less than what you would pay a college consultant to do this for you.

    Is the Merit Scholarship subscription current? I noticed the blog posts and copyright dates are a little old and it still says “beta” trial.

      Hi Kristen,

      Yes, is current. We just started a “beta” trial with the newly updated interface and data. The site has not yet been officially launched or advertised publicly. We are hoping to get user feedback first.
