The web has many sites dedicated to helping high school, undergraduate, and graduate students find scholarship information. Many of these sites also run their own scholarship sweepstakes, where they give away awards to users.

Cappex’s scholarship database allows you to enter information about yourself, including where you are located and your status in school (high school student, undergraduate student, graduate student, etc.) to filter all of the scholarship options and see only the ones where you meet the basic qualifications. You have to register for this site, but registration is free.

You don’t have to sign up for a free account to see the scholarship options listed on this site. Using filters, it also allows you to hone in on which scholarships you might be a strong candidate for based on the information you enter. If you sign up for an account and select schools you are interested in as “matches,” Niche will also list scholarship opportunities at that particular institution.
You have to create a free account (but you can sign in easily with Google). This site includes an extensive database of scholarship option and will match you to opportunities.
